English translation of the Latin (excerpted): Matthew 14 (The Return of the Twelve and the Feeding of the Five Thousand, The Walking on Water, The Healings at Gennesaret) And when evening had arrived, His disciples approached Him, saying: "?Dismiss the crowds, so that, by going into the towns, they may buy food for themselves." But Jesus said to them: "They have no need to go. Give them something to eat yourselves." They answered Him, "We have nothing here, except five loaves and two fish." He said to them, "Bring them here to me." And?He took the five loaves and the two fish, and gazing up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the bread to the disciples, and then the disciples to the multitudes. And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up the remnants: twelve baskets full of fragments. ??? Jesus promptly compelled His disciples to climb into the boat, and to precede Him in crossing the sea, while He dismissed the crowds. And having dismissed the multitude, He ascended alone onto a mountain to pray?But in the midst of the sea, the boat was being tossed about by the waves?Then, in the fourth watch of the night, He came to them, walking upon the sea. And seeing Him walking upon the sea, they were disturbed?And they cried out, because of fear. And immediately, Jesus spoke to them, saying: "Have faith. It is I. Do not be afraid." Then Peter responded by saying, "Lord, if it is you, order me to come to you over the waters." And He said, "Come." And Peter, descending from the boat, walked over the water, so as to go to Jesus?And as he began to sink, he cried out, saying: "Lord, save me." And immediately Jesus extended His hand and took hold of him. And He said to him, "O little in faith, why did you doubt?"?Then those who were in the boat drew near and adored Him, saying: "Truly, you are the Son of God." ??? And when the men of that place had recognized Him, they?brought to Him all who had maladies. And they petitioned Him, so that they might touch even the hem of His garment. And as many as touched it were made whole. Matthew 15 (The Tradition of the Elders, The Canaanite Woman's Faith, The Healing of Many People, The Feeding of the Four Thousand) He said: "Every plant which has not been planted by my heavenly Father shall be uprooted. Leave them alone. They are blind, and they lead the blind. But if the blind are in charge of the blind, both will fall into the pit." And responding, Peter said to Him, "Explain this parable to us." But He said: "?Do you not understand that everything that enters into the mouth goes into the gut, and is cast into the sewer? But what proceeds from the mouth, goes forth from the heart, and those are the things that defile a man." ??? And behold, a woman of Canaan, going out from those parts, cried out, saying to Him: "Take pity on me, Lord, Son of David. My daughter is badly afflicted by a demon." And responding, He said, "It is not good to take the bread of the children and cast it to the dogs." But she said, "Yes, Lord, but the young dogs also eat from the crumbs that fall from the table of their masters." Then Jesus, responding, said to her: "O woman, great is your faith. Let it be done for you just as you wish." ??? And ascending onto a mountain, He sat down there. And great multitudes came to Him, having with them the mute, the blind, the lam.
