One aspect of the Gospel passage this weekend has Jesus teaching his disciples about being able to receive hospitality in the villages and towns into which they are missioned to go: “Stay in the same house and eat and drink what is offered to you.” St. Bart’s is privileged this summer to be able to extend some hospitality to a couple of other SMA priests from Africa for a short while. Last week you met Fr. Wilfried, who is assigned to us this summer, and also Fr. Remy. On Sunday evening Fr. Robert, SMA arrived and will be with us for a bit until he heads to his assignment. It is a great joy to have so many missionaries visit with us during these days. Please help me in extending a very warm welcome to them.
