Believe it or not, this was not a staged photo! On hold on one line and another incoming call on the other!
Hospitality has many faces. Not only do we welcome Christ in the guest at the door, but also welcome Christ in the guest via the telephone, an email, or a letter equally. The reality of all of them is that Christ is being made present to us, to our concern, whether the individual is calling with a prayer request, making a retreat reservation, inquiring about accommodations at our bed and breakfast, looking for an item in our gift and book shop or just has a question or needs a listening ear.
In all of it, we encounter Christ if we are attentive to the moment.
