The Transfiguration of the Lord – Feast
Readings at Mass

Entrance Antiphon.  Cf. Mt 17: 5

In a resplendent cloud the Holy Spirit appeared.
The Father’s voice was heard: This is my beloved Son,
with whom I am well pleased. Listen to him.

Collect

O God, who in the glorious Transfiguration
of your Only Begotten Son
confirmed the mysteries of faith by the witness of the Fathers
and wonderfully prefigured our full adoption to sonship,
grant, we pray, to your servants,
that, listening to the voice of your beloved Son,
we may merit to become coheirs with him.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

First reading

                      ( Daniel 7:9-10,13-14)

As I watched:
Thrones were set in place
and one of great age took his seat.
His robe was white as snow,
the hair of his head as pure as wool.
His throne was a blaze of flames,
its wheels were a burning fire.
A stream of fire poured out,
issuing from his presence.
A thousand thousand waited on him,
ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him.
A court was held
and the books were opened.
And I saw, coming on the clouds of heaven,
one like a son of man.
He came to the one of great age
and was led into his presence.
On him was conferred sovereignty,
glory and kingship,
and men of all peoples, nations and languages became his servants.
His sovereignty is an eternal sovereignty
which shall never pass away,
nor will his empire ever be destroyed.

Psalm

                     Psalm 96:1-2,5-6,9

  • The Lord is king, most high above all the earth.
    The Lord is king, let earth rejoice,
    let all the coastlands be glad.
    Cloud and darkness are his raiment;
    his throne, justice and right.
    The Lord is king, most high above all the earth.
    The mountains melt like wax
    before the Lord of all the earth.
    The skies proclaim his justice;
    all peoples see his glory.
    The Lord is king, most high above all the earth.
    For you indeed are the Lord
    most high above all the earth,
    exalted far above all spirits.
    The Lord is king, most high above all the earth.

    Second reading 2 Peter 1:16-19
    It was not any cleverly invented myths that we were repeating when we brought you the knowledge of the power and the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; we had seen his majesty for ourselves. He was honoured and glorified by God the Father, when the Sublime Glory itself spoke to him and said, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour.’ We heard this ourselves, spoken from heaven, when we were with him on the holy mountain.
      So we have confirmation of what was said in prophecies; and you will be right to depend on prophecy and take it as a lamp for lighting a way through the dark until the dawn comes and the morning star rises in your minds.
    Lectio secunda
    Romans 8:35,37-39
    Quis nos separábit a caritáte Christi? Tribulátio an angústia an persecútio an fames an núditas an perículum an gládius? Sed in his ómnibus supervíncimus per eum, qui diléxit nos. Certus sum enim quia neque mors neque vita neque ángeli neque principátus neque instántia neque futúra neque virtútes neque altitúdo neque profúndum neque ália quælibet creatúra póterit nos separáre a caritáte Dei, quæ est in Christo Iesu Dómino nostro.

    Gospel Acclamation Mt17:5
    Alleluia, alleluia!
    This is my Son, the Beloved:
    he enjoys my favour.
    Listen to him.
    Alleluia!

    Gospel Matthew 17:1-9
    Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain where they could be alone. There in their presence he was transfigured: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as white as the light. Suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared to them; they were talking with him. Then Peter spoke to Jesus. ‘Lord,’ he said ‘it is wonderful for us to be here; if you wish, I will make three tents here, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He was still speaking when suddenly a bright cloud covered them with shadow, and from the cloud there came a voice which said, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour. Listen to him.’ When they heard this the disciples fell on their faces overcome with fear. But Jesus came up and touched them. ‘Stand up,’ he said ‘do not be afraid.’ And when they raised their eyes they saw no one but only Jesus.
      As they came down from the mountain Jesus gave them this order, ‘Tell no one about the vision until the Son of Man has risen from the dead.’

    Prayer over the Offerings
    Sanctify, O Lord, we pray,
    these offerings here made to celebrate
    the glorious Transfiguration of your Only Begotten Son,
    and by his radiant splendour
    cleanse us from the stains of sin.
    Through Christ our Lord.

    Communion Antiphon Cf. 1 Jn 3: 2
    When Christ appears, we shall be like him,
    for we shall see him as he is.

    Prayer after Communion
    May the heavenly nourishment we have received,
    O Lord, we pray,
    transform us into the likeness of your Son,
    whose radiant splendour you willed to make manifest
    in his glorious Transfiguration.
    Who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
