Transfiguration 2022

It is wonderful for us to be here

6 August 2022

Monastic profession of Elia, GianMarco, and Mónica

Dear brothers and sisters,
dear friends and guests,

Again this year we find ourselves before the mystery of the Lord’s Transfiguration, which the liturgy invites us to enter so that, like the disciples enveloped by the luminous cloud, we may hear the Father’s voice saying: “This is my Son, the Chosen One, listen to him!”

Isaac, a monk who was elected bishop of Nineveh and resigned after only five months to return to the anchoritic life, lived in Mesopotamia in the seventh century; he is truly an "ecumenical saint”, loved and read far beyond the boundaries of the Church to which he belonged, the ancient Eastern Syrian Church, since the fifth century no longer in communion with the rest of Christianity. Our conference, which gathers in Bose some of the leading experts on Isaac's work, intends to highlight the many aspects of his rich spiritual teaching, which, founded on the two cornerstones of humility and the infinite mercy of God, still continues today to touch the hearts of believers and to be an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the Christian life, a strong appeal to rediscover the heart of the Gospel, attaining the deep peace and joy that are a gift of God and opening oneself to universal compassion.
