I took time this morning after breakfast to reflect on the Transfiguration in Luke's Gospel (9:28-36.) Luke describes this event as a prayer experience. Blazing light transfigures Jesus as he shines with the Divine. The cloud continues to emphasize the Mystery. We cannot nail down light or cloud. We cannot hold God. Our only response before the Almighty can be silence.
Jesus takes the disciples and us up the mountain to pray. There is nothing for us to do but let ourselves be drawn into Mystery.
When I opened my eyes the bright sun was blazing through the window and transfiguring my kitchen into the Divine.
