Some wonder how God’s ordained and consecrated could be in need of such services. These people who serve God and the Church are people first, and they are vulnerable to illness and disease as another person is. (Addiction is a disease of the brain.) We welcome them warmly and are committed to walking with them on their recovery journey.

The message that comes across to me is the subject of loyalty. Namely, to whom or to what do we owe our loyalty? There is an image stamped on every one of us. (We have been created in the image and likeness of God.) In the molding and making of a good life, we need to be people of the highest virtue.
One of those primary virtues without which we could not live in harmony is the virtue of LOYALTY. As far as I am concerned it is indispensable. There can be no strong character without it. It is what holds together our relationships, our families, our churches, our communities, our nation. It is a PRIMARY virtue.
