Brother John Ryan offers another beautiful, prayerful sermon on the Transfiguration of Jesus, calling the Transfiguration the connection between God and humanity. We are mystical beings having a physical experience, John says. You can access and experience the mystical because you are a mystical being. So, when Jesus is transfigured, and his clothes begin to glow a dazzling white, and the great prophets, Elijah and Moses, appear talking to him, Peter James and John are witnessing a mystical event. And what this event reveals, to them and to us, is that the Spirit of God is available and present. John goes on to talk about how we access, or tap into, this mystical experience through our faith in Jesus.
