Spiritual Friendship

I've been promising Ron Belgau that I would write for the Spiritual Friendship blog for a long time now. I finally did. Interscape is a piece about Gerard Manley Hopkins, intersubjectivity, the meaning of friendship, and the Communion of Saints.


  1. You can't even know how helpful your observations/writing are in helping me, a mom of a woman with ssa, cope and discern how to be present to her in a way that is affirming, while faithful to the Magisterium. Thank you.


Please observe these guidelines when commenting:

We want to host a constructive but civil discussion. With that in mind we ask you to observe these basics of civilized discourse:

1. No name calling or personal attacks; stick to the argument, not the individual.

2. Assume the goodwill of the other person, especially when you disagree.

3. Don't make judgments about the other person's sinfulness or salvation.

4. Within reason, stick to the topic of the thread.

5. If you don't agree to the rules, don't post.

We reserve the right to block any posts that violate our usage rules. And we will freely ban any commenters unwilling to abide by them.
