🫶 Together We Rise: Embracing Friendship and Solidarity🫶

“Faithful friends are a sturdy shelter: whoever finds one has found a treasure.”
Sirach 6:14

Friendship is the lifeline we hold onto when the waters get rough,
and solidarity is the pact we make to never leave anyone behind. 
It’s the friend who listens without judgement, offers a shoulder to lean on,
and celebrates our successes as if they were their own. 
It’s the collective strength we draw upon when faced with challenges or injustices,
knowing that together, we can effect change and overcome obstacles. 
In friendship and solidarity, we’re a team, ready to tackle whatever life throws our way. 
It’s the phone calls just to say hi, the late-night talks and the shared jokes that make us feel at home,
and it’s in these moments that the true depth of our relationship is revealed,
as we offer unwavering support and encouragement to one another. 
Together, we’re a force to be reckoned with, bound by trust, loyalty, and an unbreakable bond.


Dear God, bless our friendships with depth and sincerity, and may solidarity be our guiding light.  Grant us the strength to uplift one another, to stand firm in unity and to journey together through life’s trials and triumphs, always bound by love.  Amen
