Two Quick Questions about Sunday's Gospel Reading
Tomorrow's Gospel is about the Transfiguration, in which Jesus' face "shone like the sun." (Matt. 17:3)
He wants the three Apostles to "glimpse the glory and majesty with which his holy human nature will be endowed in heaven." (Navarre Bible) At this, Peter is so astounded that he talks about building three booths for them, wanting to prolong the experience.
