Virtue is nothing without the trial of temptation, for there is no conflict without an enemy, no victory without strife.
Pope St. Leo the Great

St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe, your life of love and labor
for souls was sacrificed amid the horrors
of a concentration camp and hastened to its
end by an injection of a deadly drug.
Look with compassion upon ___________________
who is now entrapped in addiction to drugs and
whom we now recommend to your powerful intercession.
Having offered your own life to preserve that of
a family man, we turn to you with trust,
confident that you will understand and help.
Obtain for us the grace never to withhold our love
and understanding, nor to fail in persevering prayer
that the enslaving bonds of addiction may be broken
and that full health and freedom may be
restored to him / her whom we love.
We will never cease to be grateful to God who
has helped us and heard your prayer for us.
WE ALL STRUGGLE WITH, OR HAVE STRUGGLED WITH AN ADDICTION, WHETHER VENIAL OR DEADLY. WE SHOULD INSPIRE ONE ANOTHER TO BE HONEST WITH OUR PROBLEMS AND HELP EACH OTHER CARRY OUR CROSSES. AS THE LORD REMINDS US ALWAYS, LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOU LOVE YOURSELF.
