Exi cito in plateas et vicos civitatis
et pauperes ac debiles, caecos et claudos
compelle intrare, ut impleatur domus mea.
(Lc 14;21b, 23b)

English.png English translation

Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town
and make the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame come in
so that my house should be full.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Menj ki gyorsan a város tereire és utcáira, és kényszerítsd bejönni
a szegényeket, bénákat, vakokat és sántákat,
hogy megteljen a házam.
