“So he went down and dipped seven times in the Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God; and his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.” 2Kings5:14 . “Be purified in water, and then you will have a share of that purity which is most perfect in God. Observe how simple it is in its beginnings, how easily accomplished — just faith and water: faith which is a matter of our own choice, and water which is so natural to our own lives. And what blessings spring from these? — nothing less than the Kinship of God Himself.”- St. Gregory of Nyssa
