The transfigured of Christ is the culminating point of His public life, as His Baptism is its starting point, and His Ascension its end.
I was profiled to listen to Fr. Rutler, a man of many skills and many parishes I frequent, homilize on this subject this morning. The point which most resonated with me was that the disciples just didn't understand what was going on at the time, that is, that Christ was showing Himself as divine. Peter wants to build a few tents for everyone to stay in, and afterwards they call him Rabbi and wonder what all of this rising from the dead nonsense is about. Perhaps it would be a good idea to really listen to what Christ has to say and then do it, so as to not repeat the errors of our illustrious forefathers in the faith.
