Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

Show pity... or else...

"'I forgave you your entire debt because you begged me to.
Should you not have had pity on your fellow servant,
as I had pity on you?'

"Then in anger
his master handed him over to the torturers
until he should pay back the whole debt.

"So will my heavenly Father do to you,
unless each of you forgives his brother from his heart."

When Jesus finished these words, he left Galilee
and went to the district of Judea across the Jordan.

(from today's Gospel: Matthew 18:21-19:1)
