Lent, 5th Sunday: hospitality isn't in today's reading

I am convinced that hospitality is fundamental in Scripture and in Christian life. We almost always overlook the rich teaching about it that's all over Scripture!

"All over" doesn't mean every single passage.

I don't see any teaching about hospitality in the Gospel for today.

Next Sunday, Palm Sunday -- that's a different story! That Gospel has hospitality in every tree, in every stone, in every breath.
