To welcome, you must open your hands, hold them out in front of you, as a child does spontaneously, without hesitation. On a daily basis, welcoming is revealed in our actions, through simple gestures such as a smile, a hello, a kind look, a gentle word. Welcoming invites me to go even further. It calls on me to make myself available when I do not have the time or even when I am troubled and distraught. It invites me to be aware of the troubles and trials of others and to grasp what words cannot say.
Welcoming Others – According to Scripture
A few years ago, I became interested in the Odyssey, an ancient Greek epic poem that tells of the voyage of Ulysses.

In ancient Greek culture, hospitality was considered a moral obligation since it bound people to each other. A host was expected to give a meal and lodging to a passing stranger. And the latter was expected to return the favour if ever his host came to visit him. Xenia created reciprocal obligations of courtesy and non-violence in a society that was too often torn by violence. It was the glue that kept the culture together.
