Pop-Catechesis: The Transfiguration

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

I’m sure you can think of an experience in which you felt that someone you thought you knew showed their “true colors.” To show your true colors means to reveal yourself as you really are, for better or for worse. The Feast of the Transfiguration tells us the story of when Jesus took Peter, James, and John to the mountaintop and showed them his “true colors.” He revealed himself as he really is: the Son of God. In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we prepare to celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord (August 6).

  1. I like your series as it makes a connection between Catholic beliefs and everyday life experiences in a way that allows both adults and young people to better grasps the truth of our faith and so deepen their faith in God.
