    There's an old prayer

    which says, in part, "I do not want to be a saint, Lord; they can be so hard to live with." Then there is Saint Augustine: "Lord, help me to be chaste and continent, but not yet."

    No one is a saint. All of us have our faults. We just need to acknowledge them. But I don't want them to keep me from forming a friendship.
