Sometimes we want to live in the past. There are some beautiful times, after all, that we’ve had back then. And maybe we think all of our best times are, in fact, in our past. But the lesson of the Transfiguration is that no matter how amazing our life has been just a moment ago, we must continue to live in the present, for it is in the present that God has plans for us to do and be in the world.
