Hospitality is one of the paramount injunctions of Saint Benedict in his rule for monks.  He says that visitors are never lacking so he supplies us with a well choreographed ritual for the reception guests.  This included a formal welcoming both physically and spiritually and even included washing the guests’ feet because of the distances they had to travel on dusty roads.  Of course that was also a sign of humility because Our Lord’s act of washing the feet of the apostles which was usually relegated to servants.  Jesus came to serve and not to be served.
