If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of charity, if any society of the spirit, if any bowels of commiseration:
Fulfil ye my joy, that you be of one mind, having the same charity, being of one accord, agreeing in sentiment.
Let nothing be done through contention: neither by vain glory. But in humility, let each esteem others better than themselves:
Each one not considering the things that are his own, but those that are other men’s.
The Douay-Rheims Bible is in the public domain.
And he said to him also that had invited him: When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends nor thy brethren nor thy kinsmen nor thy neighbours who are rich; lest perhaps they also invite thee again, and a recompense be made to thee.
But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame and the blind.
And thou shalt be blessed, because they have not wherewith to make thee recompense: for recompense shall be made thee at the resurrection of the just.
