For although God can change and transform diverse natures, yet because a mystery is of more benefit to me than a miracle, I should acknowledge in the Forerunner of Christ nothing greater than the building of the growing Church, which constructed not of stony rock, but of living stones, through the conversion of our spirits rose into an habitation of God and a pediment of the Temple. Indeed, God prepared to soften the hardnesses of our minds and from stumbling blocks to erect husbandmen of religion. St. Ambrose of Milan, Exposition of the Holy Gospel According to St. Luke
