The Transfiguration is a mystery of divine happiness.
--From Chapter Two
Jesus encountered the Father in a moment of dazzling glory at the Transfiguration on Mount Tabor. This event took place as Jesus prayed, a point that brings the meaning of the Transfiguration close to us: As Jesus was transfigured in prayer, so we can be transfigured--brought from one degree of glory to another--through prayerful contemplation of Christ.
"The Mystery of the Transfiguration" considers this unparalleled event from the perspective of Scripture and some of the great teachers of the Church. But ultimately, Father Cantalamessa explains, his goal is to bring you up Mount Tabor in prayer so that in gazing on Christ, you will become like Christ, transformed in glory.
