A Daily Quote for Lent: Christ chose to be a servant who offered himself for us, by Augustine of Hippo, 430-543 A.D.
“Even though the man Christ Jesus, in the form of God together with the Father with whom He is one God, accepts our sacrifice, nonetheless He has chosen in the form of a servant to be the sacrifice rather than accept it. Therefore, He is the priest Himself Who presents the offering, and He Himself is what is offered.” (excerpt from City of God, 10,20)
Have a blessed Holy Thursday.
