The Transfiguration of the Lord

Tabor_Fano Benedict XVI, Angelus from 17th February 2008

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

 

The Transfiguration occurs when Jesus is praying. In prayer Jesus immerses himself in God and becomes one with Him, his human spirit merging with the willing love of the Father.Thus the Light overwhelms Him and reveals the truth of his being: He is God, light from light. His clothing becomes a radiant white which reminds us of our Baptism and of the white robes the novices wear. Whoever is reborn into Baptism is clothed again in white light, anticipating our heavenly life, and symbolized by the white garments in Revelation. (Rev.7,9,13)
