Affected by Friendship

Today’s Reflection

FRIENDSHIP WITH GOD, in the person of Christ, changes everything about us. It affects the way we see ourselves, others, and the world around us. It changes what we most deeply desire. It gives us the grace to become the people God wants us to be: “fully human and fully alive,” as the words ascribed to Saint Irenaeus tell us.
