Monastic Hospitality – Christine Valters Paintner

December 6, 2017

“The core of [the monastic virtue of hospitality] was that everyone who comes to the door of the monastery, and by extension the door of our lives—the poor, the traveler, those of a different religion, social class, or education—should be welcomed in, not just as an honored guest, but as a revelation of the sacred.”
