2 Cor. 1:3 Job

"Praised be God, the Father of mercies and God of all consolation, the Father of Light that illumines all men who love not darkness more than light! It dawns! Increasing brightness proclaims the final return of day, succeeding a long and fearful night."

2 Cor. 8:9 Job

Now, if this new religious community is to bear impress, and to legitimate itself as the fruit of his spirit, (Bishop Wittmann's) poverty must be the basis, the fundamental trait of this new cloister. "For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that being rich he became poor for your sakes, that through his poverty you might be rich."
