What More Can You Devise to Make Us Love You?

At Santa Cruz Church in Bangkok, Thailand

Was it not enough for you to become human and subject yourself to all our miseries? Was it not enough for you to shed all your blood for us in torments, and then to die consumed with pain, upon a cross destined for the worst of criminals? Finally, you reduced yourself to hiding beneath the species of bread and wine, to become our food, and so to be joined with each of us. Tell me, I repeat, what more can you devise to make us love you?
Saint Alphonsus Liguori
