Transfiguration of Our Lord

August 6.

The Transfiguration of Christ is the culminating point of His public life, as His Baptism is its starting point, and His Ascension its end. Moreover, this glorious event has been related in detail by St. Matthew (xvii, 1-6), St. Mark (ix, 1-8), and St. Luke (ix, 28-36), while St. Peter (II Pet., i, 16-18) and St. John (i, 14), two of the privileged witnesses, make allusion to it. 

You can read more about the Transfiguration of Our Lord on EWTN  here.  

Art 1 for Catholics (Seton)  has this reproducible image of Jesus with Moses and Elias at his side, dazzling in brightness, with the Apostles Peter, James, and John falling down at His feet.

Ester, Mabel, and Stan colored and cut out the image, pasted it on yellow construction paper and then pasted that onto red cardboard.  The final step was to spread Mod Podge over it to give it a brilliant, shiny finish.  An icon.

A beautiful way to start week 2 of school!

  1. Awesome. I prepped all the projects from Seton Art 1- most of them we did, but not this one (the ones for summer seem to be the ones we missed). Thanks to your post, the boys have been working on theirs this morning. Paul already finished and the other boys' pictures are turning out great!

    1. You are welcome! I'm starting a school bucket list for this school year. One of my goals is to focus on a lot of feast day/ holy day art projects. Keeping it simple helps me reach the goal. :)

  2. I'm so excited, I'm ordering that book this year! (Got the idea from Laurie:) Beautiful work!


Thanks for stopping by!
