SPIRIT-BEARING SOULS

When a sunbeam falls on a transparent substance, the substance itself becomes brilliant, and radiates light from itself. So, too, Spirit-bearing souls illumined by Him, finally become spiritual themselves, and their grace is sent forth to others. 

From this comes knowledge of the future, understanding of mysteries, apprehension of hidden things, distribution of wonderful gifts, heavenly citizenship, a place in the choir of angels, endless joy in the presence of God, becoming like God and, the highest of all desires, becoming God.

St. Basil the Great
