’You have all decided to follow me, that is your choice. You offer me your service, unconditionally, know that I accept it. I also promise this to you and all others that wish to follow me in the future. That I will do what I can to protect you, to serve as a good master. To help you as you help me. To heal you when you are sick. To teach you what I know."
