“The Death-Haunted Art of Friendship: Part III”

in a continuing series for Catholic Lane. Here I talk about friendship-as-kinship. I think the ending gets a little muddled–actually the whole piece could use some carding. What I want to say is both that the fragmentation of the family makes friendship and other forms of kinship all the more necessary and that friendship should support marriage rather than replacing it.
