Father Leo’s Daily Meditation




UNDERSTANDING


“Understanding is the reward of faith. Therefore seek not to understand that thou mayest believe, but believe that thou mayest understand.”

— Saint Augustine

Today I understand that God is love and that it makes more sense to live my life with love than with anger, resentment and despair. I know that the answer to life, with all the problems that may arise, is love. Not simply loving those people who love me, but beginning to love and understand those who dislike or hate me. Being imperfect people in an imperfect world produces enemies. Today I love my world by listening to my critics, changing unreasonable attitudes, growing in the humility that comes from silence. Change is part of God’s blessing of love.

This I believe. This I understand. And step by step it is beginning to work in my life.

May my love for the world give me an understanding of self.
