Upcoming: Christian Friendship: Authenticity, Understanding, Generosity

Please come back and visit next week as we will begin a three-part series on Christian friendship.

Until then, here are some thoughts to reflect upon:

"There are things we fail to remember, not because we have short memories but because we are short of love." ~Saint Josemaría Escrivá~

"True friendship also means making a heartfelt effort to understand the convictions of our friends, even though we may never come to share them or accept them".
~Saint Josemaría Escrivá~

"We Christians should give our friends understanding, attention, encouragement, consolation, optimism and joy, along with many acts of service."
~ Fr. Francis Fernandez Carvajal~

"Friendship has to be protected and defended against the forgetfulness which comes with the passage of time".
~ Fr. Francis Fernandez Carvajal~
