The Mystical Transfiguration of Christ [Sunday Homily - February 26, 2018]

Added 26 February 2018 by Bishop Robert Barron

The story of the Transfiguration of Christ has beguiled the Christian mind for centuries. It is the clearest New Testament evocation of mystical experience, the experience of spiritual things within the ordinary and the keen conviction that the spiritual reality is greater and more beautiful than ordinary experience. "Mystical" means there has been contact with a Person: the person of God.
