Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


“Great works are performed, not by strength, but perseverance.”

— Samuel Johnson

Today I saw a large 200-pound man drunk in a parking lot. Last night I heard a frail mother celebrate ten years of sobriety. The difference? Perseverance. People get what they really want in life. If you want sobriety more than anything else, are prepared to go to any lengths, then nothing will stop you. Perseverance reveals the “walk” as well as the “talk”.

Today I need to remember that what is worth having requires sacrifice and effort. God helps those who are prepared to help themselves. Today I intend to help myself to sobriety.

I pray that I may persevere through my fears towards my goal.
