HOMILY: Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord
Divinity Breaking Through Humanity
The nature of light is to illuminate. A small amount can already show us what we need to find or to show us where we need to go. Many things and events in our life are shrouded in darkness. When we ask the Lord for guidance, what we are actually asking for is clarity so that we may find a solution to our problems. Light is also not easy to conceal because it shines through the smallest cracks and can be visible even through opaque surfaces. At home, even if the door is closed, we can still tell whether the light is on or not because we see a glimmer of light in the tiny space at the bottom rail of the room’s door. In the same way, although we do not experience Jesus fully and completely as the apostles did when He walked the earth, we can still have an unmistakable experience of Jesus through the Eucharist or our encounters with others. One day, when we are called from this life, we hope to witness the Lord in His glory in heaven. It is our hope that one day, we shall find ourselves in the dazzling light of His presence.
Today, as we celebrate the Transfiguration of the Lord, may we strive to fill our lives with God’s radiant light and be a lamp lighting the way for all our brothers and sisters.
