Here’s a question using next week’s Scriptures (7/21/19). The First Reading (Gn 18: 1 - 10a) is the story of Abraham showing hospitality to visiting angels who tell him he is to have a son. The book of Hebrews (13: 1-2) has this to say about being hospitable to one another: “Keep on loving each other as brothers. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.” How would you define hospitality? What are your strengths and weaknesses regarding hospitality?
