Ordinary 13 – Hospitality turns strangers into friends. I was blessed by your welcome and I hope you were blessed by my presence. As the Diocese moves priests, welcome the new priest as Christ. Today in the Eucharist, Christ welcomes you.
Lent 4 – We need to come back to Home Base: the Father’s love for us. Sometimes we are the younger brother, sometimes the older. But we are all called to love like the Father. Experience God’s mercy 77 times, and welcome others as He welcomes you.
Jesus invites us to be humble as he is humble. At the Mass, Jesus welcomes those who cannot repay Him and offers them an hour in heaven. All Jesus is asking is that we welcome others as He welcomes us. [AUDIO]
Martha gets caught up in the things she is doing and forgets the One she is serving. We Christians often forget the presence of Christ. Jesus is more than just another visitor. He is such a close and intimate friend that He is “Christ in us.” Hospitality happens when we welcome the presence of Jesus in the persons we serve. As we have been serving others, we discover that have been serving Christ.
