Never forget it! Jesus wishes to be our closest friend, our companion along the way.
You have, certainly, so many friends, but you cannot always be with them and they cannot always help you, listen to you, console you.
Jesus, on the contrary, is the friend who never abandons you. Jesus knows you one by one, personally, He knows your name. He follows you, accompanies you, walks with you every day. He participates in your joys and consoles you in moments of grief and sadness. Jesus is the friend we cannot do without when we have met Him and understood that He loves us and wants our love.
You can speak and confide in Him, you can address Him with affection and confidence. Jesus even died on the cross for our sake! Make a pact of friendship with Jesus and never break it.
In all the situations of your life, turn to the Divine Friend, present in us with His ‘Grace’, present with us and in us in the Eucharist.
St. John Paul II, Corpus Christi June 14, 1979
