Achieving intimacy with God

“Full communion comes about only between persons who are and make themselves transparent as pure subjects. The more they are subjects . . . the more the relations between them are characterized by a greater and freer degree of communication and communion and by a more evident interiority and conscious reciprocal compenetration, thus bringing into being a still greater intersubjectivity” (Staniloae, D. 1994. The experience of God: Revelation and knowledge of the Triune God, p. 260).
