QUOTATION: Jesus' Life of Humility

St. Alphonsus Liguori
Jesus Christ, by choosing for himself so humble a birth, so despicable a life, and so ignominious a death, has ennobled and taken away all bitterness from contempt and opprobrium. It is for this that the saints in this world were always so fond and even desirous of being despised; they seemed not to be able to desire or seek for anything but to be despised and trodden underfoot for the love of Jesus Christ.

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