Prayers for Shelley battling a serious drug addiction


#1

Please pray for Shelley.

She is trying to battle a serious drug addiction on her own. She has attended the Mass (not a Catholic) this last couple of months with me and has found it very helpful to combat her temptations. She said the Mass brings her peace This week she is discerning entering a one year stay at a Catholic recovery home for women with addictions. I promised her I’d drive her on Saturday, for an enquiry meeting, if she feels up to it. After Mass today she said she wished she could go everyday. (Naturallly, I gave her the daily Mass times). She’s coming on this coming Wednesday night for a special Prayer Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

Thank you, my Brothers and Sisters in Christ
Marla

May Shelley come home to the Church. May she find there everything she needs to overcome her addiction. May she find all that she needs in You, Lord Jesus and not go seeking to fill that Jesus-shaped hole in her soul with drugs or anything else counterfeit.

Through Christ, Our Lord
Amen

Mary, Undoer of Knots; pray for her.
