The clay is always silent ….


“St. John Chrysostom has said, ‘The silence which the clay maintains in the hand of the potter, you ought to maintain in the Hands of God.’  The clay is always silent, whether the Artist makes of it a vessel of honour or for ignominy; it remains silent. Whether he breaks it, or throws it, ground to fragments, into an unclean drain, it is silent, and is as content as if he were to place it in a king’s hall.  Engrave on your memory this most profitable lesson, and put it into practice.”   (From the Letters of St. Paul of the Cross)
