Build Bridges

Reach out to those who are left out.

Sirach 6:14-15

Faithful friends are a sturdy shelter; whoever finds one finds a treasure.


If you have a special friend or two…you are indeed blessed.

We all need a friend whom we can confide in, commiserate with or celebrate with.

We are not meant to be alone (Genesis 2:18).

If you feel lonely…why not try to volunteer for some charity or outreach?

You will likely find a community of people similar to you in such activities.

Know that Jesus spent much of his time reaching out to those on the margins, those who were rejected or thrown out for various reasons.

Jesus demonstrated the heart of God who never rejects anyone.

The Living Christ is always ready to welcome you and be with you.

As Jesus said, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20).

The Living Love of God is present everywhere energizing all that is.

Even when you can’t feel it…this Love is there in the deepest part of your being.

Be present to this Love as you breathe in…and breathe out.

Look around you. Who else is in need of a friend?

Perhaps you could be that special person?
