November 1 - All Saints Day
Friendship is more than just a nice sentiment. To maintain a friendship you must be understanding and forgiving. You must listen, accept your friends just how they are, accompany him or her in their joys and sorrows, and always be there. We must think of the other person first. We must work on our friendship, but with the assurance of knowing that a friend always accepts you as you are and without any conditions.
The saints were friends of God. In other words, they listened, accepted, and assume the life of God in themselves: the cross and the glory.
Who good of a friend are you to God? Are you willing to live not for yourself but for God and for those God sends you to serve?
