Cristo é lindo sobre o monte das Oliveiras e sobre o monte Tabor, e sobre o mar, mas nunca foi tão incomparável quanto no dia em que esteve pendurado na cruz. Lá, contemplamos toda a Sua beleza em perfeição, todos os Seus atributos manifestados, todo o Seu amor derramado, todo o Seu caráter expresso.
—  Charles H. Spurgeon – Dia a Dia com Spurgeon: Manhã e Noite

Today we celebrate the Transfiguration of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Forty days before His Crucifixion, Jesus took His 3 closest disciples, Peter, James and John, up to Mount Tabor where He transfigured in light before them. The two prophets Moses and Elijah appeared beside him and a voice from heaven said “this is My beloved Son, hear Him!” Every year on the feast of Transfiguration on Mount Tabor in the Holy Lands, a miraculous cloud envelopes the whole mountain for the duration of the all night vigil. May the Lord enlighten us with his everlasting light and have mercy on us + #transfiguration #transfigurationofchrist #metamorphosis #metamorphosistousotiros #tabor #mounttabor #mttabor #israel #jerusalem #palestine #jesus #christ #jesuschrist #peter #james #john #saintpeter #saintjames #saintjohn #saint #light #orthodox #sophia

“Through the fall our nature was stripped of divine illumination and resplendence. But the Logos of God had pity upon our disfigurement, and in His compassion He took our nature upon Himself. On Tabor He manifested it to His elect disciples clothed once again most brilliantly. He showed what we once were and what we shall become through Him in the age to come – if we choose to live our present life, as far as possible, in accordance with His ways.”

~St. Gregory Palamas
