Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

MADNESS

“Sanity is madness put to good use.”

— George Santayana

I heard the phrase “make the disease work for you”. It made a great deal of sense to me and still does. I am a recovering alcoholic. My alcoholism is still within me and every day I take the necessary steps to stay sober. My disease is that “mad” part of me that wants to destroy my life, relationships and understanding of God. What I need to do is accept my “madness” and turn it around so that it works for me. My suffering is the key to my spiritual growth. My anger and manipulation helps me to understand the imperfections of others. My powerlessness over alcohol give me an understanding of humility that is based on reality. The acceptance of my “madness” keeps me sane!

O God, give me the sanity to accept my imperfections so that I can grow into the “best” that I can be.
