FR. LEO'S DAILY MEDITATIONS #essentialsofrecovery


“Saints are the sinners who keep on going.”

~ Robert Louis Stevenson ~

At times, I do not want to carry on; I do not want to fight anymore for truth and freedom. At times, it seems so much easier to give up and agree with everybody, but deep inside I know this is not true.

Occasionally, the disease speaks to me and tells me to give up and everything will be okay: “Maybe you can have one drink.” “Don’t rush off to so many meetings.” “Get what you can when you can!” It all sounds so tempting, but I know it does not work.

Sobriety works! The struggle and pain to act responsibly in my life are paying off, and it does get better. I am not going to give up. My life is worth more than a quick fix!

Spirit, let me know true courage is working through the pain.
