QUOTATION: Why Jesus Suffered
Jesus could have saved us without suffering; but he chose rather to embrace a life of sorrow and contempt, deprived of every earthly consolation, and a death of bitterness and desolation, only to make us understand the love which he bore us, and the desire which he had that we should love him.
--St. Alphonsus Liguori, The Incarnation, Birth and Infancy of Jesus Christ
