  • Transfiguration of the Lord 2018:


    Dn 7:9-10, 13-14

    As I watched:

    Thrones were set up
    and the Ancient One took his throne.
    His clothing was bright as snow,
    and the hair on his head as white as wool;
    his throne was flames of fire,
    with wheels of burning fire.
    A surging stream of fire
    flowed out from where he sat;
    Thousands upon thousands were ministering to him,
    and myriads upon myriads attended him.
    The court was convened and the books were opened.

    As the visions during the night continued, I saw:

    One like a Son of man coming,
    on the clouds of heaven;
    When he reached the Ancient One
    and was presented before him,
    The one like a Son of man received dominion, glory, and kingship;
    all peoples, nations, and languages serve him.
    His dominion is an everlasting dominion
    that shall not be taken away,
    his kingship shall not be destroyed.


    Ps 97:1-2, 5-6, 9

    R. (1a and 9a) The Lord is king, the Most High over all the earth.
    The LORD is king;let the earth rejoice;
    let the many islands be glad.
    Clouds and darkness are round about him,
    justice and judgment are the foundation of his throne.
    R. The Lord is king, the Most High over all the earth.
    The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
    before the LORD of all the earth.
    The heavens proclaim his justice,
    and all peoples see his glory.
    R. The Lord is king, the Most High over all the earth.
    Because you, O LORD, are the Most High over all the earth,
    exalted far above all gods.
    R. The Lord is king, the Most High over all the earth.


    2 Pt 1:16-19

    We did not follow cleverly devised myths
    when we made known to you
    the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    but we had been eyewitnesses of his majesty.
    For he received honor and glory from God the Father
    when that unique declaration came to him from the majestic glory,
    "This is my Son, my beloved, with whom I am well pleased."
    We ourselves heard this voice come from heaven
    while we were with him on the holy mountain.
    Moreover, we possess the prophetic message that is altogether reliable.
    You will do well to be attentive to it,
    as to a lamp shining in a dark place,
    until day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.


    Mk 9:2-10

    Jesus took Peter, James, and his brother John,
    and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves.
    And he was transfigured before them,
    and his clothes became dazzling white,
    such as no fuller on earth could bleach them.
    Then Elijah appeared to them along with Moses,
    and they were conversing with Jesus.
    Then Peter said to Jesus in reply,
    "Rabbi, it is good that we are here!
    Let us make three tents:
    one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
    He hardly knew what to say, they were so terrified.
    Then a cloud came, casting a shadow over them;
    from the cloud came a voice,
    "This is my beloved Son. Listen to him."
    Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone
    but Jesus alone with them.

    As they were coming down from the mountain,
    he charged them not to relate what they had seen to anyone,
    except when the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
    So they kept the matter to themselves,
    questioning what rising from the dead meant.


    Ordinary Time.


    jer 28:1-17

    In the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah,
    in the fifth month of the fourth year,
    the prophet Hananiah, son of Azzur, from Gibeon,
    said to me in the house of the LORD
    in the presence of the priests and all the people:
    “Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel:
    ‘I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.
    Within two years I will restore to this place
    all the vessels of the temple of the LORD which Nebuchadnezzar,
    king of Babylon, took away from this place to Babylon.
    And I will bring back to this place Jeconiah,
    son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah,
    and all the exiles of Judah who went to Babylon,’ says the LORD,
    ‘for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.’”

    The prophet Jeremiah answered the prophet Hananiah
    in the presence of the priests and all the people assembled
    in the house of the LORD, and said:
    Amen! thus may the LORD do!
    May he fulfill the things you have prophesied
    by bringing the vessels of the house of the LORD
    and all the exiles back from Babylon to this place!
    But now, listen to what I am about to state in your hearing
    and the hearing of all the people.
    From of old, the prophets who were before you and me prophesied
    war, woe, and pestilence against many lands and mighty kingdoms.
    But the prophet who prophesies peace
    is recognized as truly sent by the LORD
    only when his prophetic prediction is fulfilled.

    Thereupon the prophet Hananiah took the yoke
    from the neck of the prophet Jeremiah and broke it,
    and said in the presence of all the people:
    “Thus says the LORD: ‘Even so, within two years
    I will break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon,
    from off the neck of all the nations.’”
    At that, the prophet Jeremiah went away.

    Some time after the prophet Hananiah had broken the yoke
    from off the neck of the prophet Jeremiah,
    The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah:
    Go tell Hananiah this:
    Thus says the LORD:
    By breaking a wooden yoke, you forge an iron yoke!
    For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel:
    A yoke of iron I will place on the necks
    of all these nations serving Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon,
    and they shall serve him;even the beasts of the field I give him.

    To the prophet Hananiah the prophet Jeremiah said:
    Hear this, Hananiah!
    The LORD has not sent you,
    and you have raised false confidence in this people.
    For this, says the LORD, I will dispatch you from the face of the earth;
    this very year you shall die,
    because you have preached rebellion against the LORD.
    That same year, in the seventh month, Hananiah the prophet died.


    ps 119:29, 43, 79, 80, 95, 102

    R. (68b) Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Remove from me the way of falsehood,
    and favor me with your law.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Take not the word of truth from my mouth,
    for in your ordinances is my hope.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Let those turn to me who fear you
    and acknowledge your decrees.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Let my heart be perfect in your statutes,
    that I be not put to shame.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Sinners wait to destroy me,
    but I pay heed to your decrees.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    From your ordinances I turn not away,
    for you have instructed me.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.


    mt 14:22-36

    Jesus made the disciples get into a boat
    and precede him to the other side of the sea,
    while he dismissed the crowds.
    After doing so, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray.
    When it was evening he was there alone.
    Meanwhile the boat, already a few miles offshore,
    was being tossed about by the waves, for the wind was against it.
    During the fourth watch of the night,
    he came toward them, walking on the sea.
    When the disciples saw him walking on the sea they were terrified.
    “It is a ghost,” they said, and they cried out in fear.
    At once Jesus spoke to them, “Take courage, it is I;do not be afraid.”
    Peter said to him in reply,
    “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”
    He said, “Come.”
    Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus.
    But when he saw how strong the wind was he became frightened;
    and, beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!”
    Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught him,
    and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
    After they got into the boat, the wind died down.
    Those who were in the boat did him homage, saying,
    “Truly, you are the Son of God.”

    After making the crossing, they came to land at Gennesaret.
    When the men of that place recognized him,
    they sent word to all the surrounding country.
    People brought to him all those who were sick
    and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak,
    and as many as touched it were healed.
