Mark of Ephesus Church. Personalities Gregory Palamas

Saint Symeon the New Theologian

Symeon the New Theologian was a Byzantine Christian monk and poet who was the last of three saints canonized by the Eastern Orthodox Church and given the title of "Theologian" (along with John the Apostle and Gregory of Nazianzus). "Theologian" was not applied to Symeon in the modern academic sense of theological study, but to recognize someone who spoke from personal experience of the vision of God.

Born: c. 949; Galatia
Died: 12 March 1022; Paloukiton

For the sake of Christ
and compassion for one's neighbor

“He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.” (Mat 12:30)

Do not say that without His presence it is possible to be saved.
Do not say that one can possess the Spirit
Even if one is not consciously aware of it.
Do not say that God cannot be seen by human beings.
Do not say that humans may never see the light of God;
Or at least that it is not possible for this generation.
My friends this is never impossible.
It is more than possible — for those who desire it.

Symeon the New Theologian’
Hymn 27. Koder, Sources Chrétiennes 174: 288
