Et ideo sex verba evangelica reduco tibi ad memoriam. Primum est, quod dixit diviti: 'Vade et vende, que habes, et da pauperibus et sequere me!' Secundum est: 'Nolite sollicitari de crastino!' Tercium est: 'Videte, quomodo passeres pascuntur; quanto magis Pater celestis pascet homines!' Quartum est: 'Reddite, quae sunt Cesaris, Cesari et, que sunt Dei, Deo!' Quintum est: 'Primum querite regnum Dei!' Sextum est: 'Omnes, qui esuritis, venite ad me, et ego reficiam vos.'
