    This essay explores the relationship between justice and love in the Gospel of Luke, in the context of Luke 21 and a Lukan understanding of divine hospitality manifest in ἂφεσις and compassion. Contemporary ecological concern, which manifests in calls for ecojustice and earth love, forms a framework for this exploration. Working from an ecomaterialist perspective, I use the sense of sight as an interpretive key. Both justice and love need to be understood within the limits of creaturely life, limits which in Luke become conditions of possibility for reception of, and participation in, the hospitality of God.
