Today, I asked “Can manna be packed in a picnic basket?”
…Even if you have only bread or water, with these you can still meet the dues of hospitality. Even if you do not have these, but simply make the stranger welcome and offer him a word of encouragement, you will not be failing in hospitality. Think of the widow mentioned in the Gospel by our Lord: with two mites she surpassed the generous gifts of the wealthy.
~St. Theodoros, the Great Ascetic
Father, please help me to keep my basket full for others, even in seasons of simply manna.
