On August 6th readers and subscribers can start the St. Maximilian Kolbe Novena for Alcoholics and Addicts.
Although you can say a novena at anytime, the customary practice is to start it 9 days before the feast day, basically so that all the petitioners can be united in prayer as a community.
Just go to the link highlighted in the first sentence, and further links to all novena prayers are given there for all nine days.
St.Maximilian Kolbe is regarded as a patron saint of addicts and alcoholics as he was executed by the Nazis via lethal injection. There are links in the sidebar where you can find more information of one of my favorite patrons.Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics?
