In Mark Nepo’s daily reading today he says, “Honest friends are doorways to our souls, and loving friends are the grasses that soften the world. It is no mistake that The German root of the word friendship means, “place of high safety.” This safety opens us to God. As Cicero said, “A friend is a second self.” And As Sant Martin said, “My friends are the beings through whom God loves me.”
Wow! When you think of it that way…could there be any greater or simpler ambition then to be a friend.
