Receptivity to God’s deifying grace – 2

According to Symeon the New Theologian in his 15th Catechetical Discourse, “those who approach God by way of purification are granted to become ‘gods by adoption,’ ‘sons of the Most High according to the image of the Most High and according to His likeness'” (In Costache, D. [2008]. The seekers of Truth. Inter: Romanian Review for Theological and Religious Studies, p. 363).
