- Christ is Risen! + Truly He is Risen!
Adorn your face, therefore, with modesty, piety, almsgiving, benevolence, love,
kindliness towards your husband, reasonableness, mildness, and forbearance.
These are the pigments of virtue; by these you draw not men but angels to you as
your lovers; for these you have God Himself to praise you. When God shall
approve of you, He will win over your husband to you in every way; for if wisdom
illumines the face of man, much more does virtue make the face of a woman shine
