His love.

"When then, eternal Father, did you create this
creature of yours?... You show me that you made
us for one reason only: in your lifht you saw
yourself compelled by the fire of your love to give
us being in spite of the evil we would commit
against you, eternal Father. It was fire, then,
that compelled you. Oh, unutterable love, even
though you saw all the evils your creatures
would commit against your infinite goodness,
you acted as if you did not see and set your
eye only on the beauty of your creature, with
whom you had fallen in love like one drunk and
crazy with love... You are the fire, nothing but
a fire of love, crazy over what you have made."

- The Prayers of Catherine of Siena
