THE IMPORTANCE OF FRIENSHIP AND COMMUNITY

 

“…A community needs a soul if it is to become a true home for human beings. You, the people must give it this soul.”
John Paul II

From Catholic Social Teaching 

 

For a better understanding of friendship, see John 15:9–15, where Jesus said to his disciples:

As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father, I have made known to you.
