“Why did he die? Not for his convenience, not by necessity, but willingly, for us; because he was feeling such pain at seeing us in the flames of hell that he prefers to suffer himself, like a mother who, to save her child from the flames, has so much love to throw herself into the flames”.

(St Leonard Murialdo, Writings VI, p. 144)
