The Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Lord

This Feast day is always a reminder to me that no matter how much we wish to remain with Jesus in glory (as in those times when we experience great consolations), if we seek Him truly and wish to reach the true summit of perfection, we must put aside those consolations and travel the only real road to Him, which is Calvary. Even those saints who experienced the sweetest of consolations knew that we could really only reach Him through surrender and suffering, which is the path our Lord took and that upon which we must travel if we are to follow Him, our Good Shepherd.
