prior's message

There is a Benedictine vocabulary for hospitality, for welcoming the one Jesus calls the stranger. For St. Benedict the first word in hospitality is ‘receiving.’ The word ‘receiving’ is deceptively simple. But it designates right away an attitude of receptivity, of openness, of appreciation and of love. Think of what you feel when you receive something or someone. The attitude is one of open hands, of the willingness to let the other person be who they are. Naturally, when we receive something from someone, we take it in hand in a careful way. To receive has a tone of being given something beyond one’s control. If we believe that it is Christ whom we are receiving/welcoming in the guest-stranger, then we naturally know that we have something precious at hand. We have standing before us the presence and face of Christ. Christ is not finished walking the earth. He may be seen in the many who are on the move. It is always a challenge for us to recognize this visitor, this face.
