Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


As a recovering alcoholic I belong to a minority. As somebody with the disease of addiction I am aware of my difference. And I have experienced prejudice and injustice because I was not born like other people.

But in a spiritual sense the acceptance of my disease has given me a freedom that united me with other minorities, other “different” groups, the countless shades of humanity. My disease has produced a spiritual unity and bond with creation that makes me rejoice in my difference and produces a tolerance of others that was not there before. In this sense I thank God for my dis-ease.

You, who made the different, also created the unity; help me find both in my life.
