Dr. Dimitru Staniloae

Sanctification and humanization

translated by: Vojislav Utvić

pages: 133-147


The famous Romanian professor of theology has written an article in which he presents the teaching of the Holy Fathers on the transparency of the world which is the consequence of Christ's Transfiguration. The Orthodox Christianity believes that this world already started to be holy through its saints.

This world is in a constant process of being transfigured through the ministry of priesthood, which has the power to receive and convey the uncreated energies of God to the whole world.

This article is translated from the german periodical „Orthodoxe Stimmen”, Nr. 88/1975.
