“Whereupon the just will answer, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw thee hungry, and fed thee, or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When was it that we saw thee a stranger, and brought thee home, or naked, and clothed thee? When was it that we saw thee sick or in prison and came to thee?‘ And the King will answer them, ‘Believe me, when you did it to one of the least of my brethren here, you did it to me.'”

Gospel of S. Matthew, 25: 37-40
