`Tis the Season for Friends

During the holiday season, we take stock of our many blessings. Here at Villa, we are blessed with wonderful students, families, and friends. We embrace strangers and friends alike as we follow St. Benedict's rule of hospitality. He said, "Let everyone that comes be received as Christ." 

We encourage everyone to receive others as Christ. Our action's carry more weight than we know. We share with you an incredible story of one young girl's outreach to a stranger and the way it changed both their lives. The story made the rounds on social media a couple of weeks ago, and it serves as a reminder of what we can do with the power of kindness. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/chance-meeting-at-a-grocery-store-gives-grieving-widower-new-purpose-in-life/

Wishing you much kindness and love this holiday season!
