Before light flows over us (Fr. Thomas Rosica)

   Of the Transfiguration experience we might ask ourselves: Why did God hide all the glory on Tabor, where no one other than Peter, James and John could witness?  Why didn’t God save it for the cross?  Before light flows over us, we need to go through darkness.  The transfiguration teaches us that God’s brilliant life included death, and there is no way around it – only through it.  It also reminds us that the terrifying darkness can be radiant and dazzling.

--Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB
