FR. LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery


SAINTS AND SINNERS

“Every saint has past and every sinner a future.”

~ Oscar Wilde

I do not allow painful memories of my past to affect what I do today. Guilt is a killer if I allow it to have power. I have made amends. I have apologized to those I hurt. Today I begin the rest of my life.

The guilt and shame I felt for years grew out of my alcoholic behavior. As such, I need to remember I am not responsible for being alcoholic. It is not my fault. However, with the knowledge and acceptance of the disease comes a determination to live responsibly.

I have a sense of responsibility in my recovery. Spirituality means being a responsible person. The awareness and acceptance of my past can help create a loving future.

Infinite Spirit, show me how to forgive myself and live in Your Love.
