Gleanings from Orthodox Christian Authors and the Holy Fathers

john17_22

Just as the Father is never ignorant of the Son, nor the Son of the Father, just so neither are the saints. They are become gods by adoption through having God indwelling them. They can never be ignorant of each other, but shall look on one another and on each one's glory, like the Son the the Father's glory and the Father on the Son's. What then shall be the glory of the saints? It will be like the Son of God's. The latter Himself points out this very truth most clearly when He says: `The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one even as We are one' (Jn. 17:22). St. Symeon the New Theologian, On the Mystical Life
