The Archdiocese of Port of Spain recently embarked on a fresh pastoral approach that emphasises three aspects of the Eucharistic celebration, Hospitality, Homilies and Hymns, as a way of renewing parish life. I reflect with you on the meaning of hospitality.
The word ‘hospitable’ originates from the Latin word, hospitabilis which means to lodge, to reside, to give lodging to, or to house. The first part of the word hospit- means guests, and the second part –abilis means capable of acting. Hence, hospitable means the ability to give lodging to guests.
