St. Alphonsus Liguori
" See," says St. Bernard "see power is ruled, wisdom instructed, virtue sustained. God taking milk and weeping, but comforting the afflicted! " A God Almighty so tightly wrapped in swathing-bands that he cannot stir! A God who knows all things, made mute and speechless! A God who rules heaven and earth needing to be carried in the arms! A God who feeds all men and animals, himself having need of a little milk to support him! A God who consoles the afflicted, and is the joy of paradise, himself weeps and moans and has to be comforted by another!

--St. Alphonsus Liguori, The Incarnation, Birth and Infancy of Jesus Christ
