Hi Marjorie,

I'm wondering whether the first step is not to work out exactly what 
that laconic footnote means. The usual reading here (if Luke 12.32) is 
"Don't worry little flock [whether] your father is pleased to give you 
the kingdom." It seems that the Vulgate has "your" (as does the Greek) 
whereas a natural change would be "my" -- typical of what scribes might 
do (i.e. "[whether] my father is pleased...") though the Nestle-Aland 
apparatus gives no hint of such a change. However, the Latin would then 
require "mei" (i.e. "my"), wouldn't it? So the note remains a bit of a 
mystery. Perhaps "m. codd." means "many codices" (i.e. m. = multis)?
