More on deification – 4 – Partaking in the Divine Nature – 2

“The gift of grace surpasses every capability of created nature, since it is nothing short of a partaking of the Divine Nature, which exceeds every other nature . . . God alone should deify, bestowing a partaking of the Divine Nature by a participated likeness” (Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, 2.1:112.1).
