When a man is enriched with heavenly treasure —
and I mean the presence and the indwelling of Him Who said:
“I and the Father shall come and make our home in him” —
then such a man knows in his very soul what immense grace he has received
and what great happiness he contains within the palace of his heart.
He speaks to God like one friend to another,
and in all boldness stands before the face of Him Who dwells in light inaccessible.
St. Symeon the New Theologian
