Filthied hearts

“The heart and the soul, so beloved of God, are both filthied up by residence here, how can we avoid it? . . . I suppose therefore God is the connoisseur of filthied hearts and souls, and can see the old, first pattern in them, and cherish them for that.”

from The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry
