St Macarios

27 Feb

“The Kingdom of light and Jesus Christ, the heavenly image, illuminate the soul already today in secret, and reign in the souls of the saints; however, Christ is hidden from the eyes of men and is manifested truly only to the eyes of the soul, until the day of the resurrection, when the body itself shall be restored and glorified by the light of the Lord which already now is present in the soul.”

St Macarius the Great, Homily II, 5 (via Archimandrite Maximos Weimar)
