The Hidden Power of Kindness by Fr. Lawrence G. Lovasik

I've wanted to read "The Hidden Power of Kindness" for some time. I have no clue of its contents yet. :)

Fr. Lawrence G. Lovasik is the same author of "Clean Love in Courtship". It is included in its entirety in the pdf below on "Holy Friendship, Courtship and Marriage".

Very closely linked and highly recommended are the sections on friendship by St. Francis de Sales (Gentleman Saint and Church Doctor).
The problem of friendship and courtship is tricky. I think St. Francis de Sales clarifies issues by Fr. Lawrence G. Lovasik that are only understood in a fully Christian sense. Recall that Jesus had existing friendships with women. Lay people need holy friendships to survive in a world that denies God. This includes even after the sacrament of marriage. This does not mean that spiritual direction is not needed. Grace and virtue are required in everything that we do. Yes, there are holy and evil friendships. St. Francis de Sales covers the good, the bad, and the inbetween.
