"I am of the opinion, to be sure, that the old rite should be granted much more generously to all those who desire it. It’s impossible to see what could be dangerous or unacceptable about that. A community is calling its very being into question when it suddenly declares that what until now was its holiest and highest possession is strictly forbidden, and when it makes the longing for it seem downright indecent. Can it be trusted any more about anything else? Won’t it proscribe tomorrow what it prescribes today?"
— Pope Benedict XVI, writing in 1997

Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Rom. 12:15

Dr. Ronda’s examples: Wrote an e-mail to my far away sister telling her how eager I am to see more of her after my move to Los Angeles. I wrote to very dear new friends thanking them for a year’s companionship. I e-mailed a distant godchild and invited him to visit me when I am nearer this next 8 months. I wrote to the Watershed leaders to thank them for this time of sharing their entries and my gratitude for their hosting my blog.

Your examples:

Prayer: Dear Holy Family, I think you were a hearth of love to all in your neighborhood as well as visiting families and friends. May no one among my family and friends ever feel that I am distancing myself from them by being “too busy” to relate.
