Pray the Fourth Luminous Mystery

The Transfiguration

Our Father

Jesus took Peter, John , and James with him and went up a hill to pray. While he was praying, his face changed in appearance, and his clothes became dazzling white. (Luke 9,28-29) - Hail Mary

Suddenly two men were there talking with him. They were Moses and Elijah, who appeared in heavenly glory and talked with Jesus about the way in which he would soon fulfill God's purpose by dying in Jerusalem. (Luke 9, 30-31) - Hail Mary

Peter and his companions were sound asleep, but they woke up and saw Jesus' glory and the two men who were standing with him. (Luke 9,32) - Hail Mary

As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, "Master, how good it is that we are here. We will make three tents, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." (Luke 9,33) - Hail Mary

While he was still speaking, a cloud appeared and covered them with its shadow; and the disciples were afraid as the cloud came over them. (Luke 9,34) - Hail Mary

A voice said from the cloud, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen -- listen to him!" (Luke 9,35) - Hail Mary

When the voice stopped, there was Jesus all alone. The disciples kept quiet about all this and told no one at the time anything they had seen. (Luke 9,36) - Hail Mary

See how much the Father has loved us! His love is so great that we are called God's children --and so, in fact, we are. (1 John 3,1) - Hail Mary

We are God's children now, but it is not yet clear what we shall become. (1 John 3,2) - Hail Mary

But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he really is. (1 John 3,2) - Hail Mary

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
