Lectionary Poetry – Transfiguration Sunday (Year A)

With the dawn of a new church year, we have launched a new feature on our website, a weekly post of poetry that resonates with the lectionary readings for that week (Revised Common Lectionary).

 
 

Lectionary Reading: Matt. 17:1-9 

 

Transfiguration
Malcolm Guite

Found in:
Sounding the Seasons

Snippet:

For that one moment, ‘in and out of time’,
On that one mountain where all moments meet,
The daily veil that covers the sublime
In darkling glass fell dazzled at his feet.
