Spiritual Friendship

“Illness can be a pilgrimage. Marriage can be a pilgrimage. Any moment, really, where we recognize God’s presence can be a pilgrimage…Life itself is a pilgrimage…We are all on a journey toward God. It is up to us to decide whether that journey will be about simply surviving the daily challenges or becoming a pilgrim on the road to union with our Creator.

Spiritual friends are natural companions on the pilgrimage journey. Even when they can’t be physically present to us for some reason, they can be present to us spiritually through shared prayers, conversations, discussions about spiritual readings, and simply talking about their lives.”
