Are You Your Friend?
This morning at Mass. The service is over and I am getting ready to go to confession. Confession is so messy. I know I am going to blubber all over the place. Maybe some people go through it calmly but I never seem to. Well, I'm not hysterical but neither am I serene. Whatever the prayer is today right at the end of Mass it has the word friend in it. I sit there and am reminded, "Jesus is your friend. The priest is your friend. Are you your friend?" At this there is silence within me. I am left with that question reverberating in my soul. "Are you your friend?"
