Dawn Mass Day One
The Gospel Today
As they came down the mountain, Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone what they had seen, until the Son of Man be raised from the dead.
The disciples asked him, “Why do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?” Jesus answered, “So it is. First comes Elijah to restore all things. But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they treated him as they pleased. They will also make the Son of Man suffer.”
Then the disciples understood that Jesus was referring to John the Baptist.
Elijah has already come.
