 The following video explores what goes into a good and healthy relationship:

We ask ourselves; what do we think makes a good friend?

Jesus said ‘I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father’.  This shows that equality, sharing and trust are central to what Jesus thinks of as friendship.

Loving God, You have blessed us with the gift of friendship.

We thank you for the blessing of friends who love us,

who share our joys and sorrows,

who laugh with us in celebration,

and who need us as we need them.

We thank you for the friends who give us the freedom to be ourselves.

We pray for the grace to be good friends to others.

Help us to always reach out in friendship to all those we meet.
