Oh truly sacred mysteries! O pure light! In the blaze of the torches I have a vision of heaven and of God. I became holy by initiation. The Lord reveals the mysteries; he marks the worshiper with his seal, gives light to guide his way, and commends him, when he has believed, to the Father’s care, where he is guarded for ages to come. These are the revels of my mysteries! If you will, be initiated too, and you shall dance with angels around the unbegotten and imperishable and only true God, the Logos of God joining with us in our hymn of praise.
Saint Clement of Alexandria (c.150 – c. 215)
