Prayer Requests 6 August 2004--Feast of the Transfiguration


Let us run with confidence and joy to enter into the cloud like Moses and Elijah, or like James and John. Let us be caught up like Peter to behold the divine vision and be transfigured by that glorious transfiguration. Let us retire from the world, stand aloof from the earth, rise above the body, detach ourselves from creatures and turn to the creator to whom Peter in excstasy exclaimed: Lord, it is good for us to be here. From a sermon on the transfiguration--St. Anastasius of Sinai.
