Throughout history, God has provided man with his healing presence and his teachings to be his children of the light. God constantly seeks us out and invites us to move with him into the light – the way of goodness, love, truth and hope. God our Father does not judge by outward appearances, but by the intentions of the heart. Outward appearances are not just about people’s external looks but also the happenings and the ways of the world around us. Through our Father’s shining light these outward appearances will reveal the intentions of the heart. Being called to walk in our Father’s light means having the faithfulness and the courage to pursue the truth, goodness and beauty offered by him.
May each step bring love, peace, hope and joy that puts an end to the darkness of the world.

The Gift of Friendship
Friendship is one of the greatest gifts a human being can receive. It is a bond beyond common goals, common interests, or common histories.
It is a bond stronger than sexual union can create, deeper than a shared fate can solidify, and can be even more intimate than the ‘bonds of marriage or community.
Friendship is being with the other in joy and sorrow, even when we cannot increase the joy or decrease the sorrow. It is a unity of souls that gives nobility and sincerity to love. Friendship makes all of life shine brightly. Blessed are those who lay down their lives for their friends.
