Meditation: St Augustine, 354-430 AD

St. Augustine of Hippo, 354-430 AD: “Although God is everywhere wholly present, He does not dwell in everyone. It is not possible to say to all what the Apostle says: ‘Know you not that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?’ He that is everywhere does not dwell in all, and He does not dwell equally in those in whom He does dwell.”

Chalice of the Faithful

Solid 14kt gold with Sterling Silver and Lapis Lazuli nodes.


I designed and handcrafted

this for a Dutch priest in Phoenix, Arizona: the gold was donated personal items by the faithful in his parish to be refined to create this one-of-a-kind chalice.
