Why It’s Important to Have Good Friendships

Fr. Mike Schmitz

At a glance, you may look at friendship and say it’s not necessary for day-to-day life. It’s just “nice to have.” And the truth is… it’s not necessary. We could certainly live, breathe, and survive without friendship, just like we could live without music or art. But even though we can live without these things, would we want to? Can you picture a life without these things? What if friendships aren’t the meaning of life, but instead give meaning to life?

Today, Fr. Mike explains why friendship is not only important, but it’s vital in living our relationship with Christ.
