The Feast of The Transfiguration of Jesus had long been Solemnised, on 6 August, in different Churches of The East and The West. To Commemorate the Victory which arrested, near Belgrade, in 1456, the invading tide of Islam, and which was announced at Rome on 6 August, Pope Callistus III extended The Feast to the whole Church.

It is The Feast of many Churches under The Title of Saint Saviour. This is why Pope Saint Pius X raised it to the Rank of Double of The Second-Class, for it is the old Title of the Cathedral of Rome, Saint John Lateran, formerly called the Basilica of Saint Saviour (Feast Day 9 November).

In Low Masses: Commemoration of The Holy Martyrs, Pope Saint Sixtus II, Felicissimus
and Agapitus.
