This miracle occurred December 12, the day of La Virgen de Guadalupe. Before that there was nothing on that window, and nobody made that (I know because I go here); it it very outlined when seeing it in person and looks just like The Virgin Mary and has stayed on there for 3 months and going. She looks like she is praying with her hands together with her head sort of down concentrating on the prayer.
The Bishop Hall as I can see has many round tables, and it contains many glass windows where you can see the parking lot and peaceful nature. Normally in this Bishop Hall it is filled with people and used for parties, celebrations, and many types of other events.
I saw two giant baskets to put the items that are needed such as canned foods mostly, and other items being collected for those in poverty. I also see how money is being collected in this beautifully gold designed called”Poor Box” to use that money to help the poor.
Inside here people come to Worship the Blessed Sacrament with prayer and to be in God’s real presence. By real presence I mean in that piece of bread (Consecrated Host), is the actual presence of Jesus.
The statue here that is found right at the corner on the right as you go inside, is of Baby Jesus, The Virgin Mary, and Joseph. This statue has multiple meanings to but the main meaning is what a unified, pure, perfect family is and the love shown of the Virgin Mary and Joseph towards Baby Jesus. Also, this statue feels and looks like it its made of stone.
The classrooms of Transfiguration look very childlike but mostly because they are used for Pre-k, day care, kindergarten, and Sunday School; these classrooms are also used for multiple groups that exist such as La Divina Misericordia, which I am in, La Legion De Maria, Cafe con Dios, Mujeres de Fe, and many others in both English and Spanish.
There are good measures of safety precautions with multiple firealarms, exit signs, cameras, air conditioning, elevators, water fountains, bathrooms, general direction signs so the people know where to go and do not get lost. All of this allows for more security and commodity for the people attending or visiting the church.
The way I have observed and noticed the choir is it is very lively and spiritual the music that happens in the Church during mass in both English and Spanish. I feel like we have a pretty good choir because I have heard them. They have stands, microphones, a piano, percussion set, chairs, someone that handles the electronic equipment, and more.
This is the short history of this beautiful church. It was about a group of families, about 75 families around the 1970s that had spiritual retreats in the Northern part of Georgia, and eventually would keep growing into a religious community now being Transfiguration Catholic Church. There were around 45 families that celebrated the first mass of Transfiguration at a hotel November 13 1977.They started from scratch and ended up having a build called a Family life center and then eventually June 22 1997, having their own parish center to hold many activites led by a few Priests and a Monsignor over the years.(Transfiguration) (http://www.transfiguration.com/about-us/new-to-transfiguration/)
My experience in Transfiguration Catholic Church has always been a beauty with very good ministries, very good Priests, with everything a person needs to be complete spiritually with the Eucharist, Adoration, Retreats, Speakers, the Sacraments, a complete version of the Bible, and much more. I always feel welcome, I feel calm, and that the people are always caring and generous.
Now in the day and night I walked through the Church’s glass doors, I immediately saw a cross in the center, the ground with a circular pattern and the tile like cream with green and another design, two baskets on my left filled with cans and all types of items to give to the poor including a “poor box” to use the money to help the poor, a statue on my right that was The Virgin Mary with Joseph and Baby Jesus. I also heard many noises of children and people working in the church, but in all that noise I decided to go upstairs to save the actual temple and little chapel last. When I went upstairs I saw an elevator, a relaxation area where one can relax, read, chat in a group, even to take a nap. I also saw a library with stacks of books in shelves and tables to be able to read there if anyone wanted to do that. I started to go in a hall where I immediately heard noises of children and the adults at the nursery, and saw a sign (there are many signs in general) that guide the people so they do not become lost. I went to the Bishop Hall and found the miraculous image of the Virgin Mary on the window. I found in many parts of the church the security and commodity in different things such as the vending machine, fire alarm, elevator, camera, and more.
I did not smell anything unusual, or anything at all really. I felt the presence of the Lord especially in the little chapel where the Blessed Sacrament is located. I also heard the flowing waterfall of holy water in the temple. I felt a peace all the time as I was pacing through this experience. The temple is extremely beautiful and artistic in a modern yet mosaic way. The transparent glass doors and windows which show nature made me feel calm and tranquil. This is was an incredible experience.
