The deification of man – 4 – the era of the 8th day

The vision of the Divine Light, that is, “The full vision of the divinity having become perceptible in the uncreated Light, in its deifying grace, is ‘the mystery of the eighth day;’ it belongs to the future age. However those who are worthy of it attain the sight of ‘the Kingdom of God come with power’ (Mk 9:1) in this life, as the three apostles saw it on Mount Tabor” (Lossky, In the image and likeness of God, pp. 59-60).
