PRAYER OF THE FAITHFUL
Cel: God’s promise to Abraham of descendants as many as the stars in the sky, and land immeasurable was ratified through a covenant. The Transfiguration is an assurance to his chosen disciples that Jesus is truly the Son of God. That we too may firmly trust in God for the fulfilment of his promises to us, we pray, saying,

PRAYER OVER THE OFFERINGS

PREFACEI (Transfiguration)
It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation, always and everywhere to give you thanks, Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God, through Christ our Lord.
For after he had told the disciples of his coming Death, on the holy mountain he manifested to them his glory, to show, even by the testimony of the Law and the Prophets, that the Passion leads to the glory of the Resurrection.
And so, with the Powers of heaven, we worship you constantly on earth, and before your majesty without end we acclaim:
All: Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts…
