Summary/Abstract: The knowledge of God is often associated to seeing. The soul that sees God knows Him and recognizes Him. Seeing has a special importance as it assures you participation to the Seen one.But, in order to able to see you have to be in the same light as the Seen one, you have to be like Him. During Christ’s Transfiguration on Tabor Mountain, the Apostles recognized Christ’s glory of God “as much as they could” since they were also in the same divine light. The Lord was always covering Himself with light as a garment, but the disciples weren’t “transfigured” after Christ’s likeness, so they could have seen Him. Motovilov could also see the face of Saint Seraphim of Sarov because his face glowed from Holy Spirit’s grace, too. The person who looks at another one inwardly receives some of his attributes.
