We all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being changed into His likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. II Cor. 3:18
Today the Church remembers and celebrates Jesus’ transfiguration. That day the three apostles beheld Him in all His glory and never stopped longing to experience it again. They were part of a handful of people who were granted this privilege on earth, but all of us can look forward to eventually experiencing it in eternity and in fits and starts here in this lfe as we “are being changed into His likeness from one degree of glory to another”.
The degree of glory that God can get us to is directly correlated to our degree of trust.
St. Therese of Lisieux states, “As soon as you try to please Him in everything and have an unshakable trust, He purifies you every moment in His love and He lets no sin remain.” 1
Because we have the Holy Spirit, we can tap the source of unwavering trust. Every time we stumble, if we cry out to Him, he will lift us up and fill us with more trust and faithfulness to go on trying again and again.
Lord, I long for you deep in my soul! Help me to continue trying and trusting as You work on changing me from “one degree of glory to another”. ~Amen
