“Although the gift of this Sacrament [the Eucharist] is very great and would be great even if Christ had given Himself only to souls who would be grateful to Him or would always make worthy use of this Sacrament, it is a greater demonstration of love that He gave Himself even to many who would ignore Him or receive Him unworthily.

O King of glory, what is man that Thou shouldst love him and desire to be loved by him? What more could Thou do than Thou has done to make man love Thee?

(From The Summa of the Christian Life by Venerable Louis of Granada, O.P.)
