Enlightened by the Holy Spirit

12th Century Pentecost Icon

“The man who is enlightened by the Holy Spirit, the Revealer of all things, acquires new eyes and new ears, and sees no more as a natural man, namely by his natural sight with natural sensation, but standing as it were beyond himself contemplates spiritually visible things and bodies as the symbols of the things invisible.” (St. Simeon the New Theologian in The Universe as Symbols & Signs by Nikolai Velimirrovich, p 10)
