Today is the Feast of the Transfiguration, one of my favourite feast days. This seems like a fitting day to begin my pilgrimage. I am off to Paris first and then on to other sacred sites, in search of the Holy.

This angel caught my attention yesterday and I wondered how our angels feel watching humanity either choose life or death. How do they feel watching the disciples experience a taste of heaven on earth when Jesus encounters God blessing him with the words “You are my son, the Beloved”? What emotions do they experience seeing our struggles and joys?

Everyday we have the choice to be transfigured and to be a light for Christ in our world. Each moment presents us with an opportunity to be peace for others and to help one another know we are part of a beloved family. As I prepare to depart, I pray that my face might shine with God’s abundant love and mercy.

I will pray for you as I go, surrounded by my angels and carried with your prayers for me. My heart is grateful. May a brilliant Light dazzle you with wonder and joy today and always.



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
