Spread your cloak over the man who is falling – Mar Isaac the Syrian

good samaritan

Spread your cloak over the man who is falling and cover him. And if you cannot take upon yourself his sins and receive his chastisement in his stead, then at least patiently suffer his shame and do not disgrace him.

[Mar Isaac the Syrian, Ascetical Homilies, Homily 51]
