Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #recovery #AA #FrLeo #Spiritual #Faith #Hope



“Whenever science makes a discovery, the devil grabs it while the angels are debating the best way to use it.”

—Alan Valentine

Sometimes we can spend so long deciding what to do that we miss an opportunity. We can prevaricate to the point of impotence. Nowhere is this more true than in the science of relationships. We see somebody that we like and we go home thinking about what we could have said or done. We create happenings in our mind that never happened in fact. We miss the spiritual opportunity of risk.

For years I used to be like this. I always thought that I was not good enough, not important, less than other people: the syndrome of low self-esteem.

Today it is getting better. Part of my spiritual growth is reaching out to other people. Today I make a point of saying “Hello.” Today I will ask for a telephone number, invite people to dinner, risk a relationship.

Let me not debate myself into sickness and isolation.
