The Transfiguration of Our Lord

It's a bit late, but I thought I'd post a thought on the Transfiguration. I'm sure someone has expounded it before, but...

The light which shone from the transfigured Christ did not shine from above the cave of this world, though that Sun of the Good is its source. Rather, it shone within the "cave." It shone from the Body of Christ. And we are that body! We are the face and hands and feet through whom the divine light is to reach those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death.

An interesting thought. . .I've never thought about the Church in relation to the transfiguration.
