Latin.png Latin text

Quid prodest homini si mundum universum lucretur, animae vero suae detrimentum patiatur?
Aut quam dabit homo commutationem pro anima sua?

Futurum est enim ut Filius hominis veniat in gloria Patris sui cum angelis suis
et tunc reddet unicuique secundum opera sua.
(Mt 16;26-27)

English.png English translation

What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul?
Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?

For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels,
and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Mert mit használ az embernek, ha az egész világot megszerzi is, de az élete kárt szenved?
Vagy mit adhat az ember cserébe a lelkéért?

Mert az Emberfia eljön angyalaival Atyja dicsőségében,
és akkor megfizet majd mindenkinek aszerint, amit cselekedett.
