St Maximos the Confessor

The Lord’s tomb stands equally either for this world or for the heart of each faithful Christian.

The linen clothes are the inner essences of sensible things together with their qualities of goodness.

The napkin is the simple and homogeneous knowledge of intelligible realities, together with the vision of God, in so far as it is granted.

Through these things the Logos is initially recognized, for without them, any higher apprehension of what He is would be altogether beyond our capacity.

St Maximos the Confessor
