Thomas Maier and Marco Tavanti introduce this issue of Vincentian Heritage by exploring the sacred meaning of hospitality and the role it should play in leadership. Since hospitality is a reflection of God’s love, it calls us to practice charity in all our relationships and to address the causes of injustice, particularly those that force people to leave their home countries. It is an essential part of modern society as humanity becomes increasingly migratory. The morality of hospitality leadership is discussed. It requires “serving others, developing the capacity of others, sharing your resources with others in recognition of their inner dignity as human beings and as children of God.” Providing quality service is a hallmark of hospitality leadership.
