Ave Maria MeditationsThe Fourth Luminous Mystery – The Transfiguration

Scriptural Verses before the Hail Mary:

Jesus took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. (Lk.9:28)

And while he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white. (Lk.9:29)

Suddenly they saw two men, Moses and Elijah, talking to him. (Lk.9:30)

They appeared in glory and were speaking of his departure, which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. (Lk.9:31)

Now Peter and his companions were weighed down with sleep; but when they were fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him. (Lk.9:32)

Then Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here; if you wish, we will make three tents here, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” (Mt.17:4)

While he was still speaking, suddenly a bright cloud overshadowed them and from the cloud a voice said, “This is my beloved Son; with him I am well pleased; listen to him!” (Mt.17:5)

When the disciples heard this, they fell to the ground and were overcome by fear. (Mt.17:6)

But Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Get up and do not be afraid.”(Mt.17:7)

And when they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus himself alone. (Mt.17:8)

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.
