Divine Majesty Beheld in the Feelings of Our Human Nature

"Many things we read and believe, in the light of the sacrament of the incarnation. But even in the very feelings of our human nature we may behold the divine majesty. Jesus is wearied with his journey, that he may refresh the weary; he desires to drink when about to give spiritual drink to the thirsty; he was hungry, when about to supply the food of salvation to the hungry."

St. Ambrose of Milan, Of The Christian Faith, regarding John 4.5-42
