Saint Charles Borromeo, bishop
8 Owe nothing to anyone, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
9 The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; you shall not kill; you shall not steal; you shall not covet,” and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this saying, (namely) “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
10 Love does no evil to the neighbor; hence, love is the fulfillment of the law.
1 Hallelujah! Happy are those who fear the LORD, who greatly delight in God’s commands.
2 Their descendants shall be mighty in the land, generation upright and blessed.
4 They shine through the darkness, a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and just.
5 All goes well for those gracious in lending, who conduct their affairs with justice.
9 Lavishly they give to the poor; their prosperity shall endure forever; their horn shall be exalted in honor.
25 Great crowds were traveling with him, and he turned and addressed them,
26 “If any one comes to me without hating his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.
27 Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.
28 Which of you wishing to construct a tower does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if there is enough for its completion?
29 Otherwise, after laying the foundation and finding himself unable to finish the work the onlookers should laugh at him
30 and say, ‘This one began to build but did not have the resources to finish.’
31 Or what king marching into battle would not first sit down and decide whether with ten thousand troops he can successfully oppose another king advancing upon him with twenty thousand troops?
32 But if not, while he is still far away, he will send a delegation to ask for peace terms.
33 In the same way, everyone of you who does not renounce all his possessions cannot be my disciple.
