Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

WAR

“War is only a cowardly escape from the problems of peace.”

–Thomas Mann

Sometimes it is easier to attack than it is to discuss and seek harmony. It is easier to lash out, hurt, maim or destroy than it is to listen, forgive, understand and reconcile. Violence is so often the cowardly way out.

The sadness for our society is that war and violence are often presented as manly or heroic. Our modern heroes so often carry weapons rather than the olive branch. Surrender is seen as cowardice. Gentleness is seen as weakness. The diplomat is seen as the schemer.

My recovery teaches me that nothing is gained by acts of violence, whereas in the atmosphere of peace, God and man can be reconciled.

Give me the courage to surrender on a daily basis and bring harmony into my world.
