Catholic Word of the Day: TRANSFIGURATION OF OUR LORD, 12-18-12 ^ | 12-18-12 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 12/18/2012 8:44:10 AM PST by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


The glorification of the appearance of Jesus before his Resurrection. It took place in the presence of Peter, James, and John. While he was praying on a mountain, suddenly "his face did shine as the sun," while "his garments became glistening, exceeding white." The frightened witnesses saw Moses and Eligah appear before them and converse with Jesus and heard the voice of God. the extraordinary vision vanished as suddenly as it appeared (Luke 9:28-36; Matthew 17:1-8; Mark 9:2-8). the Church's celebration of this event occurs as a feast day on August 6. (Etym. Latin transfigurare: trans-, change + figura, figure.)
