The Feast of the Transfiguration of Jesus is August 6. The account of Jesus’ transfiguration is found in Matthew 17:1-9; Mark 9:2-10; and Luke 9:28-36. What about the gospel according to John? Why does John not record the event? There is a sense in which St. John presents Jesus as transfigured throughout the entire gospel account.
In the Episcopal Church the Feast of the Transfiguration is one of the principal feasts. In fact we hear the transfiguration story twice each liturgical year, on the Last Sunday of Epiphany and on the its feast day.
The following list is a collection of sermons and reflections on this blog that focus on the transfiguration of Jesus:

“Today doth the whole of human nature glitter in the divine Transfiguration,
in a divine manner, shouting with joy, Christ is transfigured, Savior of all.”
