While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and covered them,
and they were afraid as they entered the cloud.
A voice came from the cloud, saying,
“This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.”
When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone.
The disciples kept this to themselves
and did not tell anyone at that time what they had seen.
Luke 9:34-36



The readings for this Transfiguration Sunday:

Psalm: Psalm 99
First Reading:  Exodus 34:29-35

Collect

God of light and truth,
open our eyes to the glory of your presence
in the world around us,
but chiefly in the face
of Jesus Christ your Son our Lord;
that we may grow into his likeness,
and attain the happy fulfilment of our hope
when the splendour of the Saviour
will be revealed;
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
