The Feast of Aelred of Rievaulx

Aelred was the great champion of friendship. Take a look at something he said:
In friendship are joined honor and charm, truth and joy, sweetness and good-will, affection and action. And all these take their beginning from Christ, advance through Christ, and are perfected in Christ.
And, this seems a good day to offer the following:

We are all travelers in the wilderness of the world, and the best that we can find in our travels is an honest friend.

-- Robert Louis Stevenson
