Spanish Proverb

"Dime con quien andas y yo te digo qien tu eres."
(Trans: Tell me who you walk with and I'll tell you who you are.)

This is a cool proverb I stumbled upon at work today. It applies (or should apply) beautifully to our relationship with Christ too. [Rome students- think Gaudium et Spes 22.]

I hope you all enjoy a lovely day.
