"It is not you that shapes God, it is God that shapes you.

If you are the work of God, await the hand of the artist who does all things in due season.

Offer Him your heart, soft and tractable, and keep the form in which the artist has fashioned you.

Let your clay be moist, lest you grow hard and lose the imprint of his fingers." - attributed to St. Irenaeus

St. Irenaeus, pray for us!
