Bringing transfiguration to others
Every so often in our Church and liturgical calendar, we have a feast day or solemnity that "bumps" or replaces the usual Sunday readings. We begin August with just such an occurrence: instead of having the 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time, we celebrate the feast day of the transfiguration of the Lord on Aug. 6.
