“It is not you that shapes God.
It is God that shapes you.
If then you are the work of God
await the Hand of the artist who does

has fashioned you.

lest you go hard
and lose the imprint of His Fingers.”

and Apostles and all their disciples.”
“Being obedient she (Mary)
became the cause of salvation for herself
and for the whole human race.
The knot of Eve’s disobedience was untied
by Mary’s obedience:
what the virgin Eve bound through her disbelief,
Mary loosened by her faith.”
“As long as any one has the means
of doing good to his neighbours
and does not do so,
he shall be reckoned a stranger
to the love of the Lord.”
