Feast of the Trasfiguration (Thought's from Fr. Bill's Homily)

Christ was Transfigured on the mountain, standing there shimmering like white gold with Moses and Elijah on either side of him and what was poor Peter on about? We should build tents for them.

It took the voice of God booming at him from the clouds for Peter to get back into the moment and just be.

How often is it that we are stuck fussing over past hurts or worrying over a future that hasn't even happened yet when we should be present to what God is doing in this present moment in our lives? That is the gift of the Transfiguration; whatever went before should be left in the past. Whatever might be encountered in the future is best left in God's more capable hands. At this moment, in this place where is God and what is it that God wants of us?
