If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the Church. If he refuses to listen even to the Church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a Tax Collector! Truly, I say to you: whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in Heaven; and whatever you loosen on earth shall be loosened in Heaven. Again, truly I say to you: if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by My Father in Heaven.

At that time our Lord said: See that you

If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-hine on the hillside to search for the one that went astray? And when he finds it, truly, I say to you: he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray. So it is not the Will of your Father Who is in Heaven that one of these little ones should perish. If your Brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone.
