The Transfiguration

[The Transfiguration] is perhaps the most accurate memory the church has of Christ, having passed through his death and Resurrection, having been baptized with him, and having accepted him to be born inside us. This is the memory and the image of Christ in his fullness, above life and death, as the doorway to the kingdom of heaven, the brilliance of the Father, revealed by the Holy Spirit, resting in his saints, and inviting us into his brightness. We embark on this journey of divine discovery by placing ourselves on Mount Thabor with the fallen disciples of Jesus. They saw their Master in his divinity so that they could understand something more about who he was, and thus they would be better prepared to face his forthcoming Passion and Resurrection. By showing to them his power and his glory, Christ told them essentially this: “This is who I really am. You'll see me beaten, tortured, and crucified. You'll see me die on a cross. But nature and death cannot restrict me. I'll rise from the dead. I'll be as glorious and as luminous as you see me now. When I come back at the end of time, I will also be as you see me now, bathed in the light of my divinity. Until I return, remember my life, but me as you see me now. Every time you need to remember that time, space, and death has no power over me, every time you need to remember that what I give you is the union of the complete nature of humanity with the complete nature of God, you can remember me as I appear now in front of you, surrounded by the prophets of old who were brought here to see me and talk with me, brighter than the sun, singled out and recognized by my Father for who I am, for your sake. This is the mystery of my Transfiguration. And if you want to follow me, you'll die many times and you'll be raised with me many times, but what you see right now will be your guidance, the compass in your death, and the promise of eternal life.”

Fr. Andreas Andreopoulos


SERVICE SCHEDULE

With the lifting of the mask mandate for Minneapolis, the Cathedral no longer requires masks to be worn. Masks are welcome, however, and we ask that everyone follow good sense if they have any symptoms. The use of hand sanitizers and social distancing are still considered to be helpful. We are very grateful - before God and to our parish community - for our overall safety and stability through these long, difficult months! We look forward to seeing you!

Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.  (Galatians 6:2)
