Transfiguration of Lord Jesus Christ
- Holy Scripture reading : St. Luke 9:27-36
27 I tell you the truth, that there are some standing here, who will
not taste death, until they shall see the kingdom of God.
28 And it was about eight days after these discourses, that Jesus
took Simon and James and John, and went up a mountain to pray.
29 And while he prayed, the aspect of his countenance was changed,
and his garments became white and brilliant.

31 who appeared in glory. And they were conversing on his
departure, which was to be consummated at Jerusalem.

34 And as he thus spoke, there was a cloud; and it overshadowed
them; and they were afraid, when they saw Moses and Elijah go up into
35 And there was a voice from the cloud, which said: This is my
beloved Son; hear ye him.
36 And when the voice had passed, Jesus was found to be alone. And
they kept silence, and told no one in those days what they had seen.
