Meeting the Divine Light – 7

“Uncreated light . . . [the Divine Light] is the divinizing gift of the Holy Spirit . . . not only visible to man but is participable by him, and participating in it he is deified . . . Man is incapable of experiencing the uncreated light through his powers of perception. His eyes are blind to such a sight. But on receiving the power of the Holy Spirit they are transformed and become capable of such vision” (Mantzaridis, G.I. [1984]. The mystical experience of deification. In The deification of man, pp. 99-100).
