Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

All strangers who show up should be received as if Christ, for He will say: ‘I was a stranger and you received Me’ (Mt 25:35). And fitting honor should be shown to ‘all, especially those of the household of faith’ (Gal 6:10) and to pilgrims.


-- Rule of St. Benedict 53.1-2 (nb: hospites is translated here as "strangers," which fits with the citation of Mt 25:35, but it may also be translated as "guests.")
