Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord

Matthew 17: 1-9
Jesus became human to tell us "do not be afraid" to gaze into the face and heart of God. He is not something to be feared. She is "Our Father", our eternal parent that desires nothing more than love. We exist to live that love as best we can, fully knowing that we will fail. And yet the Incarnation assures us that we will ultimately hear these words: "You are my beloved child, with whom I am well pleased."
