Meditations on the Great Habagat Flood: Feasts of Transfiguration and Assumption

August 6 or 8/6 is the Feast of the Transfiguration when Our Lord was transfigured before Peter James and John, showing his divinity as God the Son. And after His Transfiguration, Jesus walked down the hill with his apostles to suffer and die. So let us commemorate Aug 6, if we survive this great calamity, as the Great Flood of Philippine Transfiguration.

Read Genesis 8:6-14 Noah releases the Raven and the Dove

August 15 or 8/15 is the Feast of the Assumption of Mary. On November 1, 1950, Pope Pius XII solemnly declared:
“By the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and by our own authority, we pronounce, declare, and define it to be a divinely revealed dogma: that the Immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory.”

Let us pray that on Aug. 15, the Philippines will be great nation once again who fears God and walk in His ways. So let us commemorate Aug 15, if we survive this great calamity, as the Assumption of the New Philippine Republic.
