Is it his Christmas wish list?  Does she look so dejected because she’s wondering how to pay for all of that on a carpenter’s salary?
The gold didn't last very long.

Су́дъ пра́веденъ суди́те, ми́лость и щедро́ты твори́те ко и҆́скреннему своему̀

Seems to be derived from Zachariah 7:9:

"Judge true judgment; render mercy and compassions to your neighbor."

A variant of a well-known quote of his:

"Acquire the Spirit of Peace and thousands around will be saved."

Holy Venerable Titus the Presbyter

(Heal and become wise?) and become sober in prayers.
Before all things, love one another...
...

(Not sure the rest)

Оу҆цѣломꙋдритесѧ и҆ трезвитесѧ въ мл҃твахъ. Пре́жде же всѣ́хъ дрꙋ́гъ ко дрꙋ́гꙋ любо́вь прилѣ́жнꙋ и҆мѣ́йте, занѐ любовь

This bolded portion from 1 Peter 4:7-8:

"For the end of all things is at hand; therefore, be vigilant and sober in [your] prayers. Before all, to one another have fervent love, for love covers a multitude of sins."

(I've provided my own translation for the relevant bit but I suggest glancing at whichever you prefer. The word being translated as "be vigilant" is generally taken to mean "be chaste" but looking at its roots, it has the more general meaning of being fully mindful.)

Всѧ́къ возносѧ́йсѧ смири́тсѧ смирѧ́ѧй же себе́ вознесе́тсѧ

The bolded from Luke 18:14 (NKJV):

"I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."

(Punctuation errors in the transcription belong to the letterer.)
