Mr Clare is referring to two passages from the New Testament.
The first is from the Gospel of Luke (12:20). It is part of a parable about a rich man who, instead of sharing his excess food, builds bigger and bigger barns to hoard it, only to die before he has a chance to use any of the stocks he has stored.
The second reference, "Being reviled, we bless", comes from Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians (4:12). The letter is one of several Paul wrote to new Christian communities to encourage and advise them on how to live out their faith.
