Sodality (John 15.9-17)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “sodality.”  My mentor always tells me to major on the majors, and minor on the minors.  This is a really good piece of advice for many reasons.  But especially in the sense that we must remember that relationships are given to us in life by God to share the best parts of us so that others might be encouraged by who we are as individuals.  Sodality with others is one of the gifts that God allows us to share with others, making it possible for us to thrive in community.

“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” ~Jn 15:13

My question is: who are the people with whom you share these kinds of relationships?  I know that sometimes we do not want others to get close for fear that they might learn our weaknesses and failures. But when we allow God to cultivate the relationships in our lives, we open ourselves up for positive change.  My prayer is that you continue to improve yourself and become that kind of friend that would lay down your life who you call friends.

Praying for you,
