A Collect for Transfiguration Sunday 2012

Beautiful God of radiant splendor,
The light of your face is terrifying,
Reducing all of our pretensions
Of knowing or naming your mystery
To humbled silence;
As you spoke with Moses and Elijah,
In burning bush,
In flaming chariot,
In cloud and fire upon the Mount of Transfiguration,
So speak to us today;
Help us believe again in the power of beauty,
The delight of enchantment,
And the promise of true glory,
Through the gift of the presence of your Son,
Whose face reveals your face,
Whose Word who makes possible the end of words,
Jesus Christ, our Savior and your Beloved,
