Texts: 'Well done, good and faithful servant thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things enter thou into the joy of thy Lord' (Matthew 25:23); 'Thou art careful and troubled about many things but one thing is needful and Mary hath chosen that good part which shall not be taken away from her' (Luke 10:41-2).
