A few years ago my wife and I had the honor of visiting the Mount of the Transfiguration (Mt. Tabor) in the Holy Lands. It is a fairly large mountain that has at the top the Church of the Transfiguration. This is where Jesus was transfigured in glory in front of Peter, James and John as well as Moses and Elijah. It is a very beautiful, and holy place. I would like to share some of the pictures that we took. God bless.
The three windows, one each for Jesus, Moses and Elijah shine in on the mosaic. On the Feast of the Transfiguration, Aug 6th, each year, the sun lines up to shine through all three windows to focus on Jesus in the mosaic. They say it is breathtaking to see.
Outside of the Church you can see the fairly modern monastery and retreat center on the left, as well as the ruins of older ones on the right. This site has been venerated since the first century. My good friend, Msgr. James McNamara told me that he has spent a week on retreat in the monastery. What a Holy place to spend a retreat.
We were not there to see the Glory of Jesus in the transfiguration, but someday we hope to see Him in Glory. God is good.
