Clothes Really Do Make the Man, and the Woman

Hagia Sophia

“The Lord clothes his chosen souls in
the garments of the ineffable light of his kingdom,
the garments of faith, hope, love, joy, and peace,
the garments of goodness and kindness
and all comparable things.
They are the divine garments
pulsating with light and life,
and they bring us peace that passes all description;
for God is himself Love and Joy and Peace
and Kindness and Goodness,
and this is exactly how he renews our very being
in his grace.”

– Makarios the Great in The Book of Mystical Chapters, p.137-138
