Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


“Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity, opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment.”

— Albert Einstein

Part of my growth in sobriety is learning to say “no”. For years as a practicing alcoholic I tried to please every body with the result that I pleased very few and became exhausted in the process! I have learned that sometimes I need to be unpopular in order to remain serene; unpopular to practice my spiritual program.

To understand the gift of God’s creation requires the acceptance that we are not the same and, as people, we will have different opinions and attitudes. Truth has many shades. To be unpopular at times is reality; truth is always real.

I pray that I might always say and do what I believe to be right, regardless of public opinion.
