We have then a special name for human living with each other: we call it friendship. Friendship is more than love. Friendship is more than people wishing well to other people. It involves what Aquinas calls communicatio, sharing, and the New Testament calls koinonia, sharing a common life. Friendship is a matter of being with others.
