Clad and enclosed

As the body is cladd in the cloth, and the flessch in the skynne, and the bonys in the flessch, and the harte in the bowke, so are we, soule and body, cladde and enclosydde in the goodnes of God. Yee, and more homely, for all they vanyssch and wast awey; the goodnesse of God is ever whole and more nere to us withoute any comparison.

Julian of Norwich, Revelations of Divine Love, ch.6.
