It is early August and that means that it is trime for the annual novena through St. Maximilian Kolbe for alcoholics and addicts.
It starts August 6th and ends on his Feast day, August 14th. Although some sources begin it today, the 5th.
Here are links to two prior blog posts on the Novena, the first one contains links to all nine days of the novena that I wrote in 2007, the second one is a much shorter one.
