Hospitalityis traditionally defined as the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers. Over the years the concept of hospitality has expanded to mean the attitude of making people feel like they belong, like they matter – feel at home. It is being with people in such a way that they feel special, important and welcomed into our life and our heart. It is an attitude that involves generosity in words and actions. St Benedict’s rule says, “guests are to be welcomed as Christ.” Distinctions based on wealth, creed, race and gender, for instance, are not made in expressing this value. Hospitality is a mutual value and is only complete when we give as well as receive it.
