True Friendship                           

by John Cuddeback

We all realize that we are not made to live isolated from all other human beings, and as The Book of Genesis even states, “it is not good for man to be alone.”  In addition, the question for so many people in our modern world is – what type of relationship with other people will be most fulfilling to me during my life on this earth?  Friendship is a word that is tossed around in our modern world without too much deep thought, but it is meant to be something that not only bring us fun and excitement, but more importantly leads us to fulfillment, meaning, virtue, and God.  In under 150 pages, John Cuddeback gives a remarkable summary of the Catholic perspective of friendship and its role in many various settings throughout our lives (our peers, marriage, work, etc.).  If we open ourselves up to this type of friendship, we will be transformed and certainly also grow in our relationship with God.  As usual, you will need to purchase this book to read it, but please also let me know if you don’t have the money to purchase it and would really like to do that this time around.  Please consider reading through this book, and also consider joining us either way on Wednesday, April 24th from 7:30 – 8:30 pm in the social hall for our book discussion.           

Thank you all, and God Bless you!
