The Transfiguration of Our Lord

Artist: Fra Angelico

The Transfiguration is not just about Jesus; it is about us. No one, I think, has ever expressed this reality more beautifully than the following:

God is transfiguring the world right this very moment through us because God believes in us and because God loves us. What can separate us from the love of God? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. And as we share God's love with our brothers and sisters, God's other children, there is no tyrant who can resist us, no opposition that cannot be ended, no hunger that cannot be fed, no wound that cannot be healed, no hatred that cannot be turned into love, no dream that cannot be fulfilled.

-- Desmond Tutu
