You Are Gift

During the summer I spent two nights and a day in contemplative retreat at the Benedictine Sisters of Erie monastery.

In the guest book in the room this is the welcome the Sisters have written for their guests:
By following Benedict's Rule to welcome the guest as Christ we open our hearts and receive you with reverence and respect. We offer you place and space to seek God. May it be an opportunity that leaves you with a clearer understanding of the Benedictine way of life as well as the Benedictine charism of hospitality. May it be an opportunity for our community to grow because of your presence among us. You are guest, you are Christ, you are gift. We welcome you.

--The Benedictine Sisters of Erie
