The disciples of Christ are called in pairs and are sent in pairs, because love does not exist when there is a lone person. As it is said, Woe to the one who is alone, etc.1 Two people lead the Hebrews out of Egypt;2 two carry out the bunch of grapes from the Holy Land3: that leaders may combine knowledge and effort. And they make known two commandments from the two tablets;4 and from two springs they are washed and wash;5 and they carry the ark of God on two poles;6 and they will recognize God between two cherubs,7 singing praise in mind and in spirit.8____________________
