  • Transfiguration of the Lord 2021:


    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.


    Dt 4:32-40

    Moses said to the people:
    “Ask now of the days of old, before your time,
    ever since God created man upon the earth;
    ask from one end of the sky to the other:
    Did anything so great ever happen before?
    Was it ever heard of?
    Did a people ever hear the voice of God
    speaking from the midst of fire, as you did, and live?
    Or did any god venture to go and take a nation for himself
    from the midst of another nation,
    by testings, by signs and wonders, by war,
    with his strong hand and outstretched arm, and by great terrors,
    all of which the LORD, your God,
    did for you in Egypt before your very eyes?
    All this you were allowed to see
    that you might know the LORD is God and there is no other.
    Out of the heavens he let you hear his voice to discipline you;
    on earth he let you see his great fire,
    and you heard him speaking out of the fire.
    For love of your fathers he chose their descendants
    and personally led you out of Egypt by his great power,
    driving out of your way nations greater and mightier than you,
    so as to bring you in
    and to make their land your heritage, as it is today.
    This is why you must now know, and fix in your heart,
    that the LORD is God in the heavens above and on earth below,
    and that there is no other.
    You must keep his statutes and commandments which I enjoin on you today,
    that you and your children after you may prosper,
    and that you may have long life on the land
    which the LORD, your God, is giving you forever.”


    PS 77:12-13, 14-15, 16 and 21

    R. (12a) I remember the deeds of the Lord.
    I remember the deeds of the LORD;
    yes, I remember your wonders of old.
    And I meditate on your works;
    your exploits I ponder.
    R. I remember the deeds of the Lord.
    O God, your way is holy;
    what great god is there like our God?
    You are the God who works wonders;
    among the peoples you have made known your power.
    R. I remember the deeds of the Lord.
    With your strong arm you redeemed your people,
    the sons of Jacob and Joseph.
    You led your people like a flock
    under the care of Moses and Aaron.
    R. I remember the deeds of the Lord.


    mt 16:24-28

    Jesus said to his disciples,
    “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself,
    take up his cross, and follow me.
    For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it,
    but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
    What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world
    and forfeit his life?
    Or what can one give in exchange for his life?
    For the Son of Man will come with his angels in his Father’s glory,
    and then he will repay each according to his conduct.
    Amen, I say to you, there are some standing here
    who will not taste death
    until they see the Son of Man coming in his Kingdom.”
