Gospel text (Mt 17,1-9): Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain where they were alone. Jesus' appearance was changed before them: his face shone like the sun (...). Just then Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Jesus. Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain where they were alone. Jesus' appearance was changed before them: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became bright as light. Just then Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Jesus. Peter spoke and said to Jesus, «Master, it is good that we are here. If you so wish, I will make three tents: one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah».

Peter was still speaking when a bright cloud covered them in its shadow, and a voice from the cloud said, «This is my Son, the Beloved, my Chosen One. Listen to him». On hearing the voice, the disciples fell to the ground, full of fear. But Jesus came, touched them and said, «Stand up, do not be afraid». When they raised their eyes, they no longer saw anyone except Jesus. And as they came down the mountain, Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone what they had just seen, until the Son of Man be raised from the dead.

Today we are getting ready for the Holy Week. We follow the Lord’s food steps: now we witness his Transfiguration. Jesus Christ, for a few moments, shows corporally his divine beauty. The apostles are filled with happiness and Peter says: “If you wish, I will put up three shelters, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah”.

-This is like an advancement of what Heaven will be, but before that there is the Cross… It is precisely about this, that Elijah and Moses were talking with Jesus Christ!
