"What is "transfigured" is the humanity he has personally made his own, the "garments" of visible from and audible words that make his divine identity intelligible to creatures. To see his divine glory radiating through Christ's humanity requires that the disciple follow him, ascend the "mountain" of human virtues, whose unifying center is love; and the promise implied in the vision is eschatological fulfillment, final participation in Jesus' triumph over death, adoption as beloved children of God" Introduction "Light On The Mountain" Translated By Brian E. Daley, S.J. pg. 36
