As one enters more closely into relationship with God by entering more deeply into relationship with Christ, one becomes a friend of Christ. Just as in human friendship there is a spirit of solidarity, rejoicing together in good times and comforting one another in times of sorrow, so too the one who becomes a friend of Christ through prayer begins to experience solidarity with Christ.
