  • Transfiguration of the Lord 2023:


    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.


    is 55:1-3

    Thus says the LORD:
    All you who are thirsty,
    come to the water!
    You who have no money,
    come, receive grain and eat;
    Come, without paying and without cost,
    drink wine and milk!
    Why spend your money for what is not bread;
    your wages for what fails to satisfy?
    Heed me, and you shall eat well,
    you shall delight in rich fare.
    Come to me heedfully,
    listen, that you may have life.
    I will renew with you the everlasting covenant,
    the benefits assured to David.


    ps 145:8-9, 15-16, 17-18

    R/ (cf. 16)
    The hand of the Lord feeds us; he answers all our needs.
    The LORD is gracious and merciful,
    slow to anger and of great kindness.
    The LORD is good to all
    and compassionate toward all his works.
    The hand of the Lord feeds us; he answers all our needs.
    The eyes of all look hopefully to you,
    and you give them their food in due season;
    you open your hand
    and satisfy the desire of every living thing.
    The hand of the Lord feeds us; he answers all our needs.
    The LORD is just in all his ways
    and holy in all his works.
    The LORD is near to all who call upon him,
    to all who call upon him in truth.
    The hand of the Lord feeds us; he answers all our needs.


    rom 8:35, 37-39

    Brothers and sisters:
    What will separate us from the love of Christ?
    Will anguish, or distress, or persecution, or famine,
    or nakedness, or peril, or the sword?
    No, in all these things we conquer overwhelmingly
    through him who loved us.
    For I am convinced that neither death, nor life,
    nor angels, nor principalities,
    nor present things, nor future things,
    nor powers, nor height, nor depth,
    nor any other creature will be able to separate us
    from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.


    mt 14:13-21

    When Jesus heard of the death of John the Baptist,
    he withdrew in a boat to a deserted place by himself.
    The crowds heard of this and followed him on foot from their towns.
    When he disembarked and saw the vast crowd,
    his heart was moved with pity for them, and he cured their sick.
    When it was evening, the disciples approached him and said,
    "This is a deserted place and it is already late;
    dismiss the crowds so that they can go to the villages
    and buy food for themselves."
    Jesus said to them, "There is no need for them to go away;
    give them some food yourselves."
    But they said to him,
    "Five loaves and two fish are all we have here."
    Then he said, "Bring them here to me, "
    and he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass.
    Taking the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven,
    he said the blessing, broke the loaves,
    and gave them to the disciples,
    who in turn gave them to the crowds.
    They all ate and were satisfied,
    and they picked up the fragments left over—
    twelve wicker baskets full.
    Those who ate were about five thousand men,
    not counting women and children.
