Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

A lovely image

Sometimes the images in the writings of the saints are so profound and meaningful. This one from Saint Jane de Chantal is truly a lovely prayer. May God grant it to each of us!

May God make us strong in his holy love and our souls soft and supple as a glove, or like a ball of warm beeswax in his hands, to be molded as he pleases.

  1. What a lovely prayer. Thanks so much for sharing it!

  2. The imagery of the potter is such an encouraging one.. especially for a lump of clay like me.

  3. I love the story in Jeremiah where the Potter takes a lump of clay with a flaw, and designs it just the way he wants it to be. Lord take this old lump of clay filled with flaws, and make me just what you want me to be.

    Thanks so for this lovely prayer an imagery.
