News and Readings:


It is only in true friendship that we can know and be known in ways that heal our sorrows and multiply our joys. Such friendship takes hard work and a level of emotional commitment not often found on a computer keyboard. While a computer may help to nurture such a friendship over long distances, it cannot replace the “face-time” that true friendship requires.

-Br. James Koester 
Society of Saint John the Evangelist
