Inspiration from The Office of Readings

May 8, 2009 § Leave a comment

Let us, then, preserve the unity of the body that we form in Christ Jesus, and let everyone give his neighbor the deference to which his particular gifts entitle him. Let the strong care for the weak and the weak respect the strong. Let the wealthy assist the poor and the poor man thank God for giving him someone to supply his needs. The wise man should show his wisdom not by his eloquence but by good works; the humble man should not proclaim his own humility, but leave others to do so; not must the man who preserves his chastity ever boast of it, but recognize that the ability to control his desires has been given him by another.

– St. Clement, pope, in his letter to the Corinthians
