The article deals with the interpretation of theosis in the legacy of the famous divine Archimandrite Cyprian (Kern) not as an abstract idea but as concrete reality. Theosis according to father Cyprian is improvement of the renewed man in Christ and his moral revival and spiritual ascent to Crist. This process involves all three faces of God: the Holy Spirit that gives us Grace leading us to the Son, and the Son who leads us to the Father. This concept is expressed by the maximal approach of man to God, his free communion with God.
