Feast of the Transfiguration

The Transfiguration, Armando Alemdar, 2014

God has now so spoken, that nothing remains unspoken; for that which was partially revealed to the prophets, God has now revealed totally, giving unto us all that is – his Son.  And, therefore, those who now seek visions or revelations of God offend him; they do not fix their eyes upon Christ alone, disregarding all else.

To such a one the answer of God is: This is my beloved Son on whom my favor rests. Listen to him. I have spoken all by my Word, my Son; fix your eyes upon him, for in him I have spoken and revealed all, and you will find in him more than you desire or ask. Look well to him, and you will find that I have given all in Christ.

(From The Ascent of Mount Carmel by St. John of the Cross)
