Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


“For here we are not afraid to follow wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate error so long as reason is free to combat it.”

— Thomas Jefferson

As an alcoholic I was so often afraid to challenge the thinking and ideas of other people. My “people pleasing” demanded peace at any price. And yet so much of what I heard, read and practiced I did not agree with. Now I see that my behavior, my attitude — along with the alcohol consumption — kept me sick.

In my spiritual program today I am free to reject, consider and have my own opinions in life. I do not simply have to agree with everything that is said, in this way I am discovering my value and self-esteem.

Lord, I am grateful for the freedom to cooperate.
