Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


“Without freedom, no one really has a name.”
— Milton Acorda

Part of my identity involves my disease. I am an alcoholic and my name is . . . And with this recognition of who I am comes the liberty and freedom to live and create in God’s world. Who I am involves what I am; in the fusion of the two is my spiritual identity.

For years I ran from myself because I wanted to be different. I felt that I would not be acceptable or good enough for you. In running from me, I lost my identity; the seed of low self-esteem was sown.

With the spiritual recognition that I can only be who I am came the freedom of existence and identity. I am what I am!

Lord, You said once, “I am who I am.” Well, so am I!
