Partakers of the divine nature


“By partaking of the Body and Blood of Christ
you become one body and one blood with Him.  
In such a way you become bearers of Christ,
His body and blood spread through your limbs. 
In this way you become, in the words of St Peter,
‘partakers of the divine nature’.”
St Cyril of Alexandria
Bishop, Doctor of the Church
Preeminent role at Council of Ephesus
FEAST DAY - June 27

In Cana of Galilee Christ changed water into wine,
and shall we think Him less worthy of credit
when He changes wine into His Blood?” - St Cyril of Alexandria

St Cyril of Alexandria, ora pro nobis!
