From The Brothers Karamazov, Book VII “Alyosha,” Chapter 4 “Cana of Galilee”:
Do you fear Him. He is terrible in His greatness, awful in His sublimity, but infinitely merciful. He has made Himself like unto us from love and rejoices with us. He is changing the water into wine that the gladness of the guests might not be cut short. He is expecting new guests, He is calling new ones unceasingly for ever and ever. . . .
