Perhaps this topic calls for a stark, hard-hitting polemic. But Rosaira, addressing her Christian audience here, is more gracious than that. She not only issues a call for "radically ordinary hospitality"; she also carefully unfolds the biblical mandate for us while recounting numerous, interwoven and very personal anecdotes from the hospitality-laden fabric of her family's life. And it's obvious that that life is not an easy one. It's one of cross-bearing. After considering how discomfiting, sadly foreign, and attractive is Rosaria's portrait of hospitality, I'm reminded of Chesterton's famous lines: "The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”
