Thought of the Day March 24, 2017

"A friend is that other person with whom we can share our solitude, our silence, and our prayer. A friend is that other person with whom we can look at a tree and say, "Isn't that beautiful," or sit on the beach and silently watch the sun disappear under the horizon. With a friend we don't have to say or do something special. With a friend we can be still and know that God is there with both of us." (Henri Nouwen) Is Jesus that friend? We have many close friends, but is Jesus one friend among many or the prime friend? How much time do we spend with our friends? How much time do we spend with Jesus? Do we share intimate moments with him? When we come to the end of our life, which friend do we want there with us? Lent is a grace moment given to us to deepen our friendship with Jesus. It is a dress rehearsal for the end of our life.
