Hospitality infuses the readings for this Sunday. Stories of good hospitality are in order, and we all have many of them. Try not to focus on negative stories; that doesn’t help anyone. Perhaps it is a teachable moment to consider our own national policies of hospitality and immigration. Consider the blessings that hospitality brings. The hospitality of the domestic church fulfills the conjugal blessings and images used throughout the Bible. We need to be a Church cooperating with God’s grace, by whose hospitality we are here in the world in the first place. God has made room for us. We are blessed.
