Father Leo’s Daily Meditation


“A great many people think they are thinking when they are only rearranging their prejudices.”

–William James

An aspect of prejudice in my life is my refusal to listen. I tend to stay with my own thinking and I “shut off” people or ideas I do not want to hear. The problem with this attitude is that it does not lead to discussion, growth or change.

Spirituality is having the capacity to hear what others are saying, even people you may not like or respect, and also being prepared to live with and alongside confusion and “difference”. Truth is a many-sided diamond, and it cannot be comprehended from one viewpoint. I need to remove my prejudices if I am ever to move towards an understanding of God’s truth.

I need to learn in my heart that there is that “image” of God in every person I meet.

Teach me to listen so that I may hear, so that I may grow.
