He does not, of course, conceal his deep human distress as he faces a violent death, but with absolute trust he commends himself to the father. Jesus gave himself up to death voluntarily in order to reciprocate the love of God the father, in perfect union with his will, to demonstrate his love for us. “He loved me and gave himself for me.” Each one can say this “for me.”

– Pope Francis
