Patristic Quote for the Day

Truth himself said: “I needed hospitality, and you welcomed me.” And yet often we feel no inclination to offer the gift of hospitality. But consider, my friends, how great this virtue of hospitality is! Receive Christ at your tables, so that he will
receive you at the eternal banquet. Offer hospitality now to Christ the stranger, so that at the judgment you will not be a stranger but he will accept you into his kingdom as one he knows.--St. Gregory the Great, the Dialogist, Pope of Rome, Homily on Luke 24
