Psalms 54-56; 1 Thessalonians 5

1 Thessalonians 5:14-18 We urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, cheer the fainthearted, support the weak, be patient with all. See that no one returns evil for evil; rather, always seek what is good [both] for each other and for all. Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.

In these words, St. Paul captures the essence of a holy Christian life: spiritual and corporal works of mercy, the abnegation of self for the good of the other, prayer, and gratitude.  On this Feast of the Transfiguration, let us all pray that we continue to be transformed in Christ by listening to the Father who tells us “Listen to him!”
