Fr. Tim Sabbatical Notes:
-Aristotle wrote that there are three types of friendships: useful,
pleasurable, and virtuous. The first two are relationships in which the
goal is to obtain something for ourselves. The latter, virtuous friendshipsare those in which we desire the good for the other and thereby grow in
goodness ourselves.  
-Friendships become the means by which we mediate the good in anotherperson. In other words, by extending friendship to others we become themeans by which they can come to realize both the good within
themselves and the love that others, particularly God, has for them.  
-Friendships by their very nature are political in nature. This means that
through them we strengthen the bonds of community, service, and love
that reinforce the bonds we share as a community.
