O Lord Jesu Christ, who didst advise a rich young man to sell his possessions, distribute to the poor, and then follow him: Make us mindful in this time of plenty, that salvation lieth not in the accumulation of material goods; but rather that by feeding the poor, giving drink to the thirsty, taking in the stranger, clothing the naked, and visiting the sick and them that are in prison, we do thy will; who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
