FR. LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery


“The life of the law has not been logic; it has been experience.”

~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr ~

I respect the law. I respect the society in which I live. I am not an island unto myself. I live in a community and have a responsibility to myself and others; such is sobriety.

For years, I did what I wanted and tried not to be found out. I was manipulative, dishonest, and unhappy. Then I decided to change my life. I discovered the spiritual law of freedom through responsibility. Law is the collective experience of the many who choose to live a certain way, and today I choose to live among them. My understanding of spirituality involves respecting the laws that give me the dignity of citizenship.

Dear God, help me see that the laws of civilization are a gift of freedom.
