Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

NATURE


“All are but parts of one stupendous whole. Whose body nature is and God the soul.”

– Alexander Pope

I belong to this world, this mighty universe — but more importantly, it belongs to me. I have a responsibility in this world and to this world. No longer can I abrogate my responsibility. God created and is creating through me. What I say, what I do, how I feel is important. I am important. I am terrific — because God made me and works through me.

Sometimes I feel the one-ness. I stand on a mountain top and look at the rolling hills beyond and I feel noble. The birds sing, the streams murmur and I feel a tremendous sense of joy.

But I also feel the pain of the world. The people suffering, the pointlessness of man’s violence and the injustice of prejudice. All this I feel, too.

Spirituality involves this mixture, the paradox of my being an angel in the dust!
Thank You for including me in Your design for life. I tremble at the responsibility You have shared with me.
