Drop by Drop

How is it that we do not die of love in seeing that God Himself could do no more than shed His divine blood for us drop by drop? When as man He was preparing for death, He made Himself our food in order to give us life. God becomes food, bread for his creatures. Is this not enough to make us die of love?

  1. Pie pellicane, Jesu Domine
    Me immundum munda tuo Sanguine
    Cujus una stilla salvum facere
    Totum mumdum quit ab omni scelere
