Receive guests as Christ

| | Comments (0)

Let all guests who arrive be received as Christ, because He will say: "I guesthouse.jpgwas a stranger and you took Me in" (Mt 25:35). And let due honor be shown to all, especially to those "of the household of the faith" (Gal 6:10) and to wayfarers. (Rule of Saint Benedict, 53)

The New York Times Travel section today has a good article promoting monastic guesthouses. The author Jane Margolies has an appreciation for the simplicity and serenity of the monastic cloister which in turn welcomes travelers. Read the article and consider a monastery guest on your next trip.
