Thanks to Michelle Abernathy for making this coloring page of the Transfiguration of our Lord!
Here is the collect for the day:
“O God, who on the mount didst reveal to chosen witnesses thine only-begotten Son wonderfully transfigured, in raiment white and glistening; Mercifully grant that we, being delivered from the disquietude of this world, may be permitted to behold the King in his beauty, who with thee, O Father, and thee, O Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth, one God, world without end. Amen.”
The Transfiguration of our Lord Jesus Christ is recorded in Matthew 17:1-13, Mark 9:2-13, and Luke 9:28-36. Jesus took Peter, James, and John to a mountain, traditionally Mount Tabor. As Jesus prayed, he is transfigured before the disciples — his clothing becomes radiantly white and his face shines like the sun. And then, Moses and Elijah appeared and talked to him. Peter responded ( apparently not knowing what he was saying) with a desire to build three tents and commemorate the event. A cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud: “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased. Listen to him!” The disciples were terrified but Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Rise, and have no fear.” The feast celebrating this day started in the Eastern Church and became universal in the mid-fifteenth century.
Which edition of the BCP is in that photo? I’ve never seen that particular rubric before!
Hi Lance. It’s the 1928 “according to the use of the Reformed Episcopal Church” (Our church is REC).
I would love to print copies of this coloring sheet for our congregants to color during worship this Sunday. Is it possible to get permission to do so? It would be about 75 copies. And of course I would include the artist info at the bottom
Yes, you definitely can!
