Meditations on the Great Habagat Flood: Feasts of Transfiguration and Assumption
August 20, 2012 Leave a comment
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.
