“Thou, Lord, have commanded to thy servant, Moses, to make bishop’s and priest’s vestments and different other types of beauties for the decorum and beauty of Thy holy altar…, for them to show worthy of serving Thy Holy Mysteries, and for the exalting of Thy all-holy name, and for the priests who will serve by means of them, for redemption and defense from all the enemy treachery, for Thy pleasure and for the winning of Thy grace and charity…” (Prayer performed at the vestments’ consecration – The Orthodox Euchologion – p. 641).
