“After the resurrection we shall receive this earthen vessel – our body – once again. But then it will no longer be heavy and burdensome, sensual and sluggish but entirely changed by the starry gleam of our sweetest Jesus; it will shine rays brighter than the sun enlightening even the ether. These sufferings here are small in comparison to the future compensation.”
(Elder Joseph the Hesychast in “Monastic Widom”)
