The glorious light emanating from the face of the transfigured Christ on Mount Tabor or the radiant countenance of Moses after descending Mount Sinai, intimate either divinity or divinization. So too, the sanctity of saints has sometimes been manifested by a similar ethereal light radiating from within them. When we think of divinization we can thus, perhaps, associate this great mystery with this kind of supernatural effect. However, if divinization is participating in God’s very being (which is love), then some of its effects are more accurately described by Saint Paul in his elaboration of love. Thus, divinization is evidenced by our becoming ever more fully what love is, namely, patient, kind, not jealous, not pompous, not inflated, not rude. It is apparent when we don’t seek our own interests, when we’re not quick-tempered, when we no longer brood over injuries, and never rejoice over wrongdoing, but only with the truth. It is shown when we are able to bear all things, believe all things, hope all things, and endure all things. And so, holiness and divinization are less about radiant light and more about incarnating, as did Christ, the God who is love.
