The Company We Keep

I remind my kids about how we can be affected by the company we keep. This quote reminds me that the same applies to me....

"Just as two friends, frequently in each other's company, tend to develop similar habits, so too, by holding familiar converse with Jesus and the Blessed Virgin, by meditation on the mysteries of the Rosary and by living the same life in Holy Communion, we can become, to the extent of our lowliness, similar to them."

-Blessed Bartolo Longo

Thank you so much Allison...I think of St. Teresa, how much she loved to chat with her friends, until she finally decided the only one she wanted to later on was Him....

I have often over the years told my children to pick their friends with care... that we often become our friends. I am going to copy this quote for my family. +JMJ+
