If no one wants to go, I will.
We value our Benedictine legacy of hospitality. All whom we meet should experience Christ’s redeeming love through us.
Because God says to me … “You are precious in my eyes, and I love you”, I am able to say the same to others. God, seeing the splendor in me, helps me to see the splendor in others. My power to love comes from God, a gift that comes from being created in the image of God. I claim this gift that it may become visible in my life.
All guests should be welcomed as Christ, who says,
“I was a stranger and you took me in”.
Rule of St. Benedict, Ch 53
All should be welcomed as Christ.
(cf.Rule of Benedict, Ch 53)
