Then a cloud surrounded them, and they heard a voice within that cloud.
Voice: This is My beloved Son. Listen to Him.
On the Mount of Transfiguration, Jesus was changed before them so that they saw His glory. And the voice of the Father rang out through the clouds, "This is My Beloved Son - Hear Him!" God had spoken in times past in many ways, but now He sent His Son and spoke to us in Him (Hebrews 1:1). No one is in the same category as Jesus, not saints or Mary or prophets or apostles - no one. He is God's one and only beloved unique Son.
O Father, You command all men to honor Your Son and to come to You only through Him. You sent him into the world to be the Light of the world, and He has sent His Spirit into our hearts, enlightening our darkness. Help us to see the glory of Christ unveiled in Scripture, and when we see Him transfigured, let us by that sight be transformed.
