Weeks of Elijah-Cross: The Painting

 

 

Jesus’ Transfiguration on mount Tabor was a foretaste of the heavenly bliss to the selected THREE. The presence of Moses and Elijah there proclaims Jesus as the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets. Three tents signify the presence of Jesus in the Church. The constant working of the Holy Spirit also is pictured. The faithful experience this bliss primarily in the Qurbana celebration and in the “Divine Praises”, the Liturgy of the Hours.
