Rome Quotes

"And since, though the habit does not make the monk, it is necessary nevertheless that clerics always wear a dress comfortable to their order, that by the propriety of their outward apparel they may show forth the inward uprightness of their morals, yet to such a degree have the contempt of religion and the boldness of some grown in these days, that esteeming but little their own dignity and the clerical honor, they even wear in public the dress of laymen, setting their feet in different paths, one of things divine, the other of the flesh."

-Council of Trent
