You are the Potter; we are the clay

“A rough and unshaped log has no idea that it can be made into a statue that will be considered a masterpiece, but the carver sees what can be done with it.  So many do not understand that God can mold them into saints, until they put themselves into the hands of that almighty Artisan.”       St. Ignatius Loyola                    
God has created us in His image. Through His prophets and His Son, He has called us and shown us the way He wants to shape us.  Paul puts it so well in his letter to the Galatians:  "the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives--love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control."  

May we all be willing to let this transformation flow into us; to let His refining fire remove the dross from us as we seek to live humbly, justly, and faithfully.
