Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

BELIEF


“An atheist is a man who has no invisible means of support.”

— John Buchanan

The common cry of those who suffer from addiction is that they feel isolated. Not only isolated from self, family and friends but also from God. One reason for this feeling of isolation is teachings and attitudes that produced guilt, shame and fear. God was seen as a hammer with which society beat the addict.

Today, in an atmosphere of love and fellowship, we begin to look at these old attitudes and, hopefully, begin to change them. God can be seen in the hug as well as the sacrament; in the doubt as well as the dogma. In the honest sharing of fellow addicts, God is made known. God needs to be given a human face.

Teach me to grow in the virtues of tolerance and understanding.
