Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

WORLD


“All wars are civil wars, because all men are brothers … Each one owes infinitely more to the human race than to the particular country in which he was born.”

— Francois Fenelon

My disease of addiction kept me separate, isolated and alone. I was so busy seeing how I was different from other people that I missed the similarities. I missed the “oneness” of this creation by always placing myself above it, below it, outside it: and I was the loser.

Even my religion kept me separate. I was a Christian and not a Jew, Muslim or Hindu — but I failed to see the similarities of these major philosophies; I failed to see what all religious people have in common; I failed to see the inclusiveness of Love, Truth and Forgiveness.

God is to be found in the “difference” and “sameness” of His people.
O Lord, I am discovering that even the differences, when understood, become the same.
