THE TRANSFIGURATION

The Tranfiguration is remembered each year not only on (or near) August 6, but also on the Last Sunday after the Epiphany, the season of Epiphany being a time when we travel alongside the disciples as they come to know Jesus of Nazareth as Christ, the Messiah.

At Saint Thomas, there have been many sermons over the years which are helpful in understanding this miraculous event. Among them are these.

Collect:

O God, who on the holy mount didst reveal to chosen witnesses thy well-beloved Son, wonderfully transfigured, in raiment white and glistening: Mercifully grant that we, being delivered from the disquietude of this world, may by faith behold the King in his beauty; who with thee, O Father, and thee, O Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth, one God, world without end. Amen.

Dominic

Priest, Friar, Founder of the Order of Preachers (Dominicans)
b. c.1170
d. 1221

Lesser Feasts and Fasts describes the legacy of the establishment of Dominican friaries in this way:

The Dominican Constitutions, first formulated in 1216, and revised and codified by the Master-General of the Order, Raymond of Peñafort, in 1241, place a strong emphasis on learning, preaching, and teaching, and, partly through the influence of Francis of Assisi, on absolute poverty.

The Dominicans explicitly gave priority to intellectual work. They established major houses in most university centers, to which they contributed such notable teachers as Thomas Aquinas. Their Constitutions express the priority this way: “In the cells, moreover, they can write, read, pray, sleep, and even stay awake at night, if they desire, on account of study.”

Collect:

O God of the prophets, who didst open the eyes of thy servant Dominic to perceive a famine of hearing the word of the Lord, and didst move him, and those he did draw about him, to satisfy that hunger with sound preaching and fervent devotion: Make thy Church, dear Lord, in this and every age, attentive to the hungers of the world, and quick to respond in love to those who are perishing; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
