Another Novena for Alcoholics

John Blair of the Venerable Matt Talbot Resource Center emailed me a link for another Novena for Alcoholics .

I am having problems with the link to the original site, so here is the prayer in its entirety:

Memorare Novena
Petition: For all those who are addicted and for those who suffer with them.

Pray Daily for Nine Days:

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known
that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help,
or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come,
before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Amen.

I won’t be having a daily post and meditation on it, just use it on your own with whatever thoughts and meditations you have.

Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! (Thank you!!)
