The Last Sunday after the Epiphany of our Lord Jesus Christ
Opening Prayer: As my mind is bent to tell of bodies changed into new forms, my God, who wrought these very changes, breathe on these my understandings, and bring down my thoughts in unbroken strains from the world’s first beginning even unto the present time. May these be the words to say, may they be what need be heard. Amen
Homily – The Transfiguration
Closing Prayer: God, grant us the audience of Transfiguration through the pages of Scripture, in the kindness of another’s face, from the awakening earth. Where there was bare ground, life emerges heavenward. The tree, skeletal and dormant yesterday, is irrepressible today. Let us not accumulate these springs as ever-increasing anniversaries, rather let us embrace this life as a countdown to a Promise when the ultimate metamorphosis be ours. Until that moment, may we be an audience pleasing to you, rehearsing our part until we hear that Voice. Amen.
