Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


“Men of integrity, by their very existence, rekindle the belief that as a people we can live above the level of moral squalor.”

— John Gardner

I understand integrity to be a willingness to make sacrifices for what we believe to be true. The living of a spiritual program must lead to integrity.

Not so many years ago integrity was not an understood word in my vocabulary because of my unwillingness to make sacrifices. I was so selfishly preoccupied with my “wants” that I gave little thought to the needs of others. The more I lost myself in “self”, the greater was the emotional pain.

Today I live the paradox that it is only in giving that I truly receive.

May I daily express the paradox of sacrifice in my life.
