Today I started reading On Heaven and Earth: Pope Francis on Faith, Family, and the Church in the Twenty-First Century. The book contains a series of conversations then Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio had with Rabbi Abraham Skorka, Rector of the Latin American Rabbinical Seminary in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm about one-third of the way through it so far and am finding it fascinating. I will be reviewing it once I am done and will be focusing on what the future pope had to say.
Tonight, however, I would like to share this quote by Rabbi Skorka on friendship:
The sign of a real friendship is the ability to reveal what is in one's heart to another person.
