Hospitality in the time of COVID-19
“Care of the sick must rank above and before all else, so that they may truly be served as Christ, for he said: ‘I was sick and you visited me’ (Matt 25:36), and ‘What you did for one of these least brothers you did for me’ (Matt 25:40). Let the sick on their part bear in mind that they are served out of honor for God, and let them not by their excessive demand distress on anyone who serves them.” (RB 36)
