Magnificat, the monthly prayer guide and daily Missal, has partly inspired a similar monthly publication for Eastern or Byzantine-rite Catholics, which many Westerners may also be interested to read, called THEOSIS (the Greek word for "divinization"). It has more substantial articles than Magnificat, and is focused less on the daily Mass than on the daily Office, in accordance with the Eastern rite. The doctrine of theosis is expressed by the Catechism of the Catholic Church in para 460, based on patristic teaching: "The Son of God became man so that we might become God."
