St. Michael, whose name means “Who is like God”, be our defender against the wickedness and snares of our addiction. Keep at bay the demons that pursue and try to overtake us and prevent us from living out our vocation as the adopted children of God.
St. Raphael, whose name means “God heals”, intercede on our behalf and obtain for us the healing we seek for our addiction. As the Patron of Happy Meetings, place in our path the people we need to help us on our way.
St. Gabriel, whose name means “Strength of God”, as the Angel of the Incarnation announced the coming of the Messiah to the Blessed Virgin Mary. As the Mother of our Lord perfectly accepted God’s will into her life, please assist us in discerning His will in our own, especially as we sometimes see it dimly and haphazardly through the confusion of our addictions.
We humbly ask this in the Name of Jesus, our Lord.
