Transfiguration of Our Lord: Worship at 8:00 am 10:30 am

***
Icon4 Color 199

The Gospel for this Sunday:

Matthew 17:1-9

This is My Beloved Son

This week's festival is a bridge between the Advent-Christmas-Epiphany cycle that comes to a close today and the Lent-Easter cycle that begins in several days. On a high mountain Jesus is revealed as God’s beloved Son, echoing the words at his baptism. This vision of glory sustains us as Jesus faces his impending death in Jerusalem. We turn this week to Ash Wednesday and our yearly baptismal journey from Lent to Easter. Some churches put aside the alleluia at the conclusion of this Sunday's liturgy. This word of joy will be omitted during the penitential season of Lent and will be sung again at Easter.
