The Gospel Reading for the Last Sunday After Epiphany tells of the Transfiguration of Jesus.

Said in unison:

Mystery of mysteries, hide not your face from us.  Hear our confession and forgive us of sin.  We go to the mountains to escape our involvements.  We hear your commandments, then hide from their truth.  We hide our faces to conceal our identities; Christ unmasks our pretense and strips us of pride.  Help us not to be afraid to encounter your presence, and through Christ to stand before you pardoned of our sin.
