Parody 105 - Apostlic Ascetism - Food, Baggage and Lodgings ?
|9||We found a ship moored at the shore ready to embark, and we spoke with the sailors of the ship about our coming aboard with them.||105|
|11||And after we had embarked, we sailed a day and a night.||105|
|16||And after we had gone ashore with the baggage, I went into the city, to seek advice about lodging.||105|
|26||I said to him, "My brother and my friend!"||105|
|27||He answered me, then, saying, "Rightly did you say, 'My brother and my friend.'||105|
|29||I said to him, "I ask you about lodging for me and the brothers also, because we are strangers here."||105|
|30||He said to me, "For this reason have I myself just said, 'My brother and my friend,' because I also am a fellow stranger like you."||105|
|94||Peter responded and said to him, "We want you to do us a favor, because we are strangers, and take us to the house of Lithargoel before evening comes."||105|
|122||What we are concerned about (now) is the food for a single day.||105|
|123||Where will we be able to find the needs that you ask us to provide for the poor?"||105|
