Hebrews 13:2

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.

Sister Joan Puls is past president of the international congregation of the Sisters of Saint Franicis. She is an author who served on the faculty of Alverno College.

Spend some time with children. Count among your friends and regular associates those who are poor. Learn from the sick and those who treat life as the gift it is. And observe true lovers, or better, become one. Such as these are sacraments of freedom in a world frightened by it own uncontrolled destructiveness and oppressed by its own denial of innocence and gentleness.

From Joan Puls Every Bush is Burning.


Dear God, help me this day to treat the moments and encounters with others as sacred acts. Show me the true enjoyment of life You plan for me as a disciple of my Lord and Savior, Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
