We pray that those suffering from addiction may be helped and accompanied.

Prayer

Jesus, our Savior,
your walking among us
brought liberation to many:
from disease, from unclean spirits,
from paralysis and blindness.
Today, many of our brothers and sisters
are prisoners of so many forms of dependence.
We ask you to place on their way
attentive people who can help them.
May your Holy Spirit give them light
to recognize their situation,
strength and courage to win this fight,
and the joy of helping those who are
going through these difficulties.
Our Father…

 

Offering Prayer
Good Father, I know you are with me.
Here I am on this new day.
Place my heart once more
next to the Heart of your Son Jesus,
who is giving himself for me and who comes to me in the Eucharist.
May your Holy Spirit make me your friend and apostle,
available for your mission of compassion.
I place in your hands my joys and hopes,
my works and sufferings, everything that I am and have,
in communion with my brothers and sisters of this Worldwide Prayer Network.
With Mary, I offer you my day for the mission of the Church
and for the prayer intentions of the Pope and my Bishop for this month.
Amen.

Proposals for the month

  • Examine honestly how you use your own available time and money, see if you spend them in a disorderly way and/or if in either field you are subject to any form of dependence yourself.
  • Take time, in the family, in catechesis or in the groups or communities in which you are a part, for conversation and reflection about people close or known to you who are under the influence of any type of addiction to find suitable means to help them.
  • Get better informed about institutions that help victims of addiction, look for more information about them and, collaborate with them according to your own possibilities.
