Our Work of the Chaplain Passage for this episode is Revelation 22:17 which says, “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”

Our Work of the Chaplain quote for this episode is from Alexandre Vinet. He said, “The place of charity, like that of God, is everywhere.”
