Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


“If the work of God could be comprehended by reason, it would be no longer wonderful, and faith would have no merit if reason provided proof.”

–Pope Gregory I

Some things happen that I do not understand or comprehend, but I have faith that they will happen tomorrow: sunsets, night following day, the song of the bird, the colors of nature, and the joy and adventure of being alive. Perhaps the biggest mystery for mankind to grapple with is love – a man will suffer, endure persecution, even be put to death for that which he loves; the pain and sorrow of love is mingled into what it is to be a human being.

Reason does not have the answer to life. Faith is the medication for our existence. We have a belief in tomorrow because of what we have experienced today. If I can say “no” to alcohol today then I can do it tomorrow – if I really want to.

Lord, let me not seek for proof but daily seek to grapple with the problems of life.
