And so it continues with the thirteenth miracle.
After six days he was transfigured on a high mountain in the presence of his disciples (cf. Mark 9:1), so that they would not fear the scandals of the cross, since they had seen with their own eyes the glory of the future resurrection.
And they kept the matter to themselves, discussing what it should mean--"when he shall be risen from the dead" ( Mark 9:9).
Mark is the only one to give this. When death will have been swallowed up in victory,1the former things will be forgotten, and will not come to mind;2 when the Lord will take away the filth of the daughter of Sion,3 wiping away every tear from all the faces of the saints.4____________________
