From today’s Gospel, from St John: ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, he who receives any one whom I send receives me; and he who receives me receives him who sent me’. The Rule of our Holy Father St Benedict teaches us that Christ is received in the guest, and in all to whom hospitality is shown.

As we progress in the Easter season, let us take these words to heart, welcoming all who come our way as Christ. May God bless you in this.
