We have just celebrated the grand feast of the founding of the Church, Pentecost. In reflection we have pondered the wonderful “gifts of the Holy Spirit” that are ours in the Church. Christ Jesus promised and delivered these in His last days with the disciples before ascending to His Father in heaven.
In a similar way, those of us who carry the disease of alcoholism and have found recovery should know the “gifts of sobriety.” This week would be a good time to reflect on some of these marvelous gifts we have received:
True sense of relaxation
Freedom from dishonesty
Miracle of accountability
Forgiving ourselves and others
