I saw this book while I was on retreat last month, and was intrigued by the cover, title, and concept, so it’ll be my reading material for July. It’s one of those things that sounds so simple–being hospitable to all, including strangers and those who don’t think or act or believe as we do–but can be so hard to do. Radical Hospitality: Benedict’s Way of Love opens with some passages of The Rule of St. Benedict, including: “Let us open our eyes to the deifying light, let us hear with attentive ears the warning which the divine voice cries daily to us, ‘Today if you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.'” May we all attempt to live that call from Psalm 95 today and always in our interactions with the Lord and His people.

What’s on your nightstand?
