Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


“Treat all men alike. Give them all the same laws. Give them all an even chance to live and grow.”

~ Chief Joseph

Today it is important for me to remember that I am not the only human being in this universe; I need to respect and be considerate of others. Spirituality requires that I treat all people with dignity and respect because they carry something of God within them — the image of God is with all men. In this way I show and give respect to self.

As an alcoholic I was selfish and demanding, wanting my way all the time. Sobriety teaches me that “the way” must include others; my fellow men are part of my life and journey. I cannot live in isolation and be sober.

O Spirit of the World, teach me to respect all men as a service to myself.
