Luke 22:42

… verumtamen non mea voluntas, sed tua fiat…

Mary Vitamin:

… Jesus wanted to give himself to me in the simplicity of his divine infancy…

In Conversation with God:

… we have not a high priest who is unable to sympathise with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sinning.

The internal offering of Jesus gives full meaning to all the external elements of his voluntary sacrifice – the insults, the stripping of his garments, the crucifixion…

Jesus was not offered up to the Father by Pilate or by Ciaphas, or by the crowds surging at his feet. It was He who surrendered himself.
