Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

LIES


“Christ cannot possibly have been a Jew. I don’t have to prove that scientifically. It is a fact!”

— Joseph Goebbels

Today I know that if a lie is said loudly enough, often enough, with ceremony and ritual, people will believe it. I can identify with the above statement: I said I was not alcoholic because I did not drink every day, in the mornings, all day and I was too young! People believed me. Some people still choose to believe this lie.

Spirituality requires that I not only confront the lies in other people but also in myself. Usually if I am angry at the remarks of others, it is because they remind me of myself.

Today I seek not simply to condemn but to understand.

May I continue to learn from the criticism I make of others.
