A King, abased by love to the level of his poor subject, still preserves his liberty, his personal action as a man.

If attacked, he can defend himself, save his life, call for help. Our Lord delivers Himself up defenseless. He can neither complain nor save Himself nor call for help. He has forbidden His angels to help Him or to punish those that insult Him, although it is an instinct of nature to succor another, no matter who he may be, who is attacked or in danger. But Our Lord? No! No one will help Him. He is Man, He is God. He retains, nevertheless, only the power to love and to abase Himself.
