  • Transfiguration of the Lord 2022:


    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.


    Hab 1:12-2:4

    Are you not from eternity, O LORD,
    my holy God, immortal?
    O LORD, you have marked him for judgment,
    O Rock, you have readied him punishment!
    Too pure are your eyes to look upon evil,
    and the sight of misery you cannot endure.
    Why, then, do you gaze on the faithless in silence
    while the wicked man devours
    one more just than himself?
    You have made man like the fish of the sea,
    like creeping things without a ruler.
    He brings them all up with his hook,
    he hauls them away with his net,
    He gathers them in his seine;
    and so he rejoices and exults.
    Therefore he sacrifices to his net,
    and burns incense to his seine;
    for thanks to them his portion is generous,
    and his repast sumptuous.
    Shall he, then, keep on brandishing his sword
    to slay peoples without mercy?

    I will stand at my guard post,
    and station myself upon the rampart,
    And keep watch to see what he will say to me,
    and what answer he will give to my complaint.

    Then the LORD answered me and said:
    Write down the vision
    Clearly upon the tablets,
    so that one can read it readily.
    For the vision still has its time,
    presses on to fulfillment, and will not disappoint;
    If it delays, wait for it,
    it will surely come, it will not be late.
    The rash man has no integrity;
    but the just man, because of his faith, shall live.


    Ps 9:8-9, 10-11, 12-13

    R. (11b) You forsake not those who seek you, O Lord.
    The LORD sits enthroned forever;
    he has set up his throne for judgment.
    He judges the world with justice;
    he governs the peoples with equity.
    R. You forsake not those who seek you, O Lord.
    The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed,
    a stronghold in times of distress.
    They trust in you who cherish your name,
    for you forsake not those who seek you, O LORD.
    R. You forsake not those who seek you, O Lord.
    Sing praise to the LORD enthroned in Zion;
    proclaim among the nations his deeds;
    For the avenger of blood has remembered;
    he has not forgotten the cry of the poor.
    R. You forsake not those who seek you, O Lord.


    Mt 17:14-20

    A man came up to Jesus, knelt down before him, and said,
    "Lord, have pity on my son, who is a lunatic and suffers severely;
    often he falls into fire, and often into water.
    I brought him to your disciples, but they could not cure him."
    Jesus said in reply,
    "O faithless and perverse generation, how long will I be with you?
    How long will I endure you?
    Bring the boy here to me."
    Jesus rebuked him and the demon came out of him,
    and from that hour the boy was cured.
    Then the disciples approached Jesus in private and said,
    "Why could we not drive it out?"
    He said to them, "Because of your little faith.
    Amen, I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed,
    you will say to this mountain,
    "Move from here to there," and it will move.
    Nothing will be impossible for you."
