Who Are Our Friends?

A quick, easy response might be, our relatives, co-workers, neighbors and benefactors.  Whatever the answer, the sense of belonging is founded on the principle of friendship.

Authentic friendship is a gift from God, which paves a path for the exchange of communication between two persons or more, based on benevolence and mutual support, like spouses in holy marriage.  On the other hand, worldly friendship oftentimes seems fleeting as exchanged on social media.

We can all yearn for good friendships by praying to Saint Francis de Sales given what he declared:

“Friendships begun in this world will be taken again (in heaven) never to be broken off.”

Thanks be to God!


May all your friendships be forever endearing
