Stand in the fear of God and listen to the Holy Gospel.
A reading from the Gospel according to our teacher Saint Matthew the Evangelist.
May His Blessings be with us all.
Matthew 17 : 1 - 9
|1||Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves;|
|2||and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light.|
|3||And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him.|
|4||Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."|
|5||While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!"|
|6||And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces and were greatly afraid.|
|7||But Jesus came and touched them and said, "Arise, and do not be afraid."|
|8||When they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only.|
|9||Now as they came down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, "Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man is risen from the dead."|
And Glory be to God forever.
