The Saints understood the value of a good friend. Friends that encourage us and inspire us in our faith are an essential part of the Christian life. As the Saints remind us in these quotes, a true friend is difficult to find and when we do find one, we should do all we can to maintain that friendship.
Do you have a faithful friend? What are the qualities that you look for in a friend? Why are true friends so hard to find?
10 Quotes on Friendship From the Saints
If you’re searching for ways to draw your friendships into something deeper than Facebook likes, consider attending our Live Encounter, a 1-hour virtual presentation, on Friendship.
Are you looking for a community of companions to create true spiritual bonds?
What does it mean to be people of hope, and how does that change our lives and make us more compassionate friends during difficult times?
Drawing on the cardinal and theological virtues, stories of the saints, and anecdotes from their own friendships, Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet—bestselling authors of Divine Mercy for Moms— will answer these questions and more in this Live Encounter- Friendship Project.
As an attendee, you will receive a Guide to making and keeping fabulous, faith-filled friends that will serve as a practical primer for any Catholic seeking fresh ways to reach out to old friends and provide fun suggestions for making new ones. By employing Church teaching and telling us stories of their own friendships and those from the lives of saints and biblical women—including the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Elizabeth, St. Thérèse of Lisieux and her sister Servant of God Léonie, and Sts. Perpetua and Felicity, our hosts will inspire you to seek deeper friendships. Not only will you be drawn closer to friends both new and old but you’ll also be reminded how these friendships—and the virtues you practice to nurture them—draw you closer to God.
