Hospitality: Responding to God’s Generous Welcome to Us

From a Christian, Benedictine perspective hospitality involves far more than providing comfort for guests.  This retreat will reflect on ways in which God welcomes us, ways in which we are summoned to welcome Him, and ways in which we can make room for others and thus have our hearts expanded in the love of Christ.
