St. John the Apostle is my confirmation patron, and also the patron saint of friendships. Last time I went to confession, the priest, whom is a very holy man, told me to spend more time with friends. I wanted to ask you to pray to St. John for us to all have stronger, Christ-centered, prayer-focused friendships in Communion with the Saints, Angels, and Holy Trinity. May we all enjoy going to Mass and Adoration with out friends, praying the Rosary, Divine Mercy chaplet, and other devotions, learning about the Lord through Scripture and Church teaching together. Pray that we bring new people into the Church as friends.
St. John is also the patron saint of these:

•Eger, Hungary, archdiocese of

Prayer to Saint John the Evangelist
O Glorious Saint John, you were so loved by Jesus that you merited to rest your head upon his breast, and to be left in his place as a son to Mary. Obtain for us an ardent love for Jesus and Mary. Let me be united with them now on earth and forever after in heaven.
