For your consideration...

Sacred Scripture is replete with references to the blessings of the admission of faults as a preparation for the reception of God’s mercy and forgiveness. Perhaps we should begin by a firm reminder that the Fifth Step, as such, should not be confused with the Sacrament of Penance.

Soon Bill was talking about all the AA steps and taking his Fifth Step (telling of the exact nature of his wrongs) with this priest, who with no warning, had limped in from a storm.5 He told Father Ed about his anger, his impatience, his mounting dissatisfactions: his demands on the world. Father Ed quoted to him, “Blessed are they who hunger and thirst.”

For your consideration

When we add the Calix dimension to Step Four we add a tremendously important reason for working on ourselves in relationship to fellow humanity. That reason is our responsibility to see our neighbor as an image of God and our relationship with him as a means of service to our Heavenly Father.
