Si ergo offers munus tuum ad altare et recordatus fueris quod frater tuus habet aliquid adversum te: relinque ibi munus tuum ante altare et vade prius reconciliari fratri tuo et tunc veniens offeres munus tuum. Alleluia.

Wenn du deine Gabe auf dem Altar opferst und dort kommt dir in den Sinn, dass dein Bruder etwas gegen dich hat, so lass dort vor dem Altar deine Gabe und geh zuerst hin und versöhne dich mit deinem Bruder, und dann komm und opfere deine Gabe. Halleluja.

If thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Halleluja.
