Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

WORLD


“We are citizens of the world; and the tragedy of our time is that we do not know this.”

–Woodrow Wilson

In recovery I have learned to “go home” to who I am – and part of this involves my understanding my place in this vast universe. I am a child of God and my “family” is not just my immediate blood relatives, but also the millions of other people that inhabit this planet.

God did not just make me. God does not just love me. God is concerned for all His children. As an alcoholic I did not have this attitude and I was always feeling lost and different. I became selfish and narrow in my lifestyle. Other people were tolerated.

Today I have a “big” God and He has enabled me to grow not only in my acceptance of self but also in my acceptance of others. Today I am a citizen of the world and it feels good.

Lord, today I know what it is to belong to the human family. And with this awareness comes responsibility.
