St. Rose of Lima
Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy were dear friends of the Thessalonians. As such, they encouraged them, bragged about them, and most of all, prayed for them. Have you surrounded yourself with friends like these?
One more thing: As school begins there may be some ups and downs in your child's friendships. Come back to this passage from a letter between good friends as the standard for friendship. Is your child thanking God for that friend? If not, then perhaps they aren't a friend after all.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the friendship of your son Jesus. Help me to teach my children how to be true friends through living by the great commandments. Bless me with friends that encourage me in my vocation of motherhood. I ask this in your son Jesus' name, Amen. St. Rose of Lima, pray for me.
