Item description for But I Have Called You Friends: Reflections on the Art of Christian Friendship by Mother Mary Francis & Mary...

In these gentle, simple, yet profound conferences, Mother Mary Francis, P.C.C., explores both the necessity and the difficulty of Christian friendship. Friendship is the basis of all fruitful love, she wrote. Whether we are single or married, priest or religious, the Lord himself called us his friends and commanded us to be the friends of one another. Mother explained the reason this command is so difficult: knowing, understanding, and respecting another person are necessary for loving him, and these things take time. We must be friends if we are to love. With this small volume, Mother Mary Francis inspires us and helps us to be patient by revealing both the demands and the rewards of our vocation to love and be loved.

Publishers Description
Mother Mary Francis gives us a fresh look at one of the oldest arts--friendship. Long before you have finished the book you will know that the author really means it. She goes to the source of Love and invites you to accompany her. You cannot sell friendship. You can only give it away. That is what Mother Mary Francis does. Love and friendship, coming straight from the heart of God, are poisoned by going through the filter of a selfish and self-centered heart. Yet it is friendship and love, unmasked and real, that every man seeks. Mother Mary Francis tells us how to recapture the commodity in shortest supply in the world, the love and friendship of Jesus Christ, in whom we have our friendship with all his brothers and sisters. This book is for everyone. For those married, and about to be, for here is the deepest of human friendships. It is for religious, for in Christ they are to make a community of friendship. For friends, and for those you would like to be your friends.

Reviews - What do customers think about But I Have Called You Friends: Reflections on the Art of Christian Friendship?

Simple and Challenging  Sep 2, 2007
In our search for the answers to the desire for happiness, companionship and fulfillment, we often craft complex answers that deliver little satisfaction. The answers to these problems are often instead very simple but challenging to follow. That is the case with the vision for friendship which Mother Mary Francis puts forth in this collection of conferences which she gave to her sisters. If we live the demands of friendship as Mother Mary Francis illustrates them what emerges is the genuinely lives Christian life as Christ asks of us. This is certainly good reflection material to weigh against how we're living out our daily relationships as well as good guidelines to shore up those portions in our lives where we are not quite meeting the mark.
Excellent  Feb 11, 2007
A very good guide for Christian Friendships - easy to read and simple, but challenging to follow.
