Anselm: The Greatest Act of Self-Giving

“There can, moreover, be nothing that a man may suffer—voluntarily and without owing repayment of a debt—more painful or more difficult than death. And there is no act of self–giving whereby a man may give himself to God greater than when he hands himself over to death for God’s glory.”

-Anselm of Canterbury, Why God Became Man, Book 2, 11.
