Divine Nature, Partakers of

Resource Toolbox

(Latin: consortes divinæ naturæ) Phrase found in 2 Peter 1, by which Saint Peter expresses the excellence of the state of grace. Christian grace imparts to us a sublime share in God's own life. It makes us children of God, it deifies us, and gives us a supernatural resemblance to Our Heavenly Father by impressing an our souls the image of Christ, His Incarnate Son. This marvelous life of grace is the prelude and means of the eternal life of glory where the blessed see God face to face and love Him in bliss. Thus men are enabled to share in God's ineffable beatitude by the beatific vision and love of the Triune God.
