The transfiguration (Mark 9:2-8)
9:2 Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them up a high mountain where they could be alone by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured:
9:3 his clothes became dazzlingly white, whiter than any earthly bleacher could make them.
9:4 Elijah appeared to them with Moses; and they were talking with Jesus.
9:5 Then Peter spoke to Jesus: 'Rabbi,' he said 'it is wonderful for us to be here; so let us make three tents, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah'.
9:6 He did not know what to say; they were so frightened.
9:7 And a cloud came, covering them in shadow; and there came a voice from the cloud, 'This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him.'
9:8 Then suddenly, when they looked round, they saw no one with them any more but only Jesus.
Time to go down to earth…
It took us slightly longer to descend to the Chapel, reasons? It is actually harder to “climb down than to climb up“, we were tired, some of our foot ware were broken, our legs painful etc, etc.
It was really good, Harry said let’s climb Mt KK next year! Oh no, I think Mt Santubong would be my personal limit,,,
(I did scaled Mt Santubong with a friend on Day 2 of Hari Raya day 2 October 2008, unbelievable, I never thought I could make it, but with perseverance, I did, the first time!)
p.s. Adriana met a friend at the Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto before our climb, took a photo for remembrance.
