A Companion to Battle Addiction


When battling the hard things of life like addiction, we need spiritual companions to pray for usspiritual brothers and sisters to fight for us from heavens gaze. St. Maximilian Kolbe, the humble Franciscan priest who gave his life for another prisoner in Auschwitz, is known as the patron saint of those who battle addictions. Fr. Kolbes example of courage and love can be an encouragement to those you may know who are fighting the battle of addiction in their own lives.


Dear God,
the pain and suffering
of addiction
is something that
touches the lives
of many families
and individuals.
Surround those suffering
with help, resources,
and companions on the journey
to healing and wholeness.
St. Maximilian Kolbe,
pray for those most affected
by the pain of addiction.


Has addiction touched the life of someone you know or someone in your family? Think about how you can support them on the path to healing.
