TO ALL WITH ADDICTIONS
CDDA:  DEDICATED / ADDICTIONS  SERIES
We all have Addictions. So this page is dedicated to all of us! It is easy to turn to worldly answers to relax and bury these problems instead turning to our Lord for answers. 
+
WE ARE FILLED WITH SELF DOUBT
As the world is out of control woth money problems, self doubt, unworthiness, allBut some are small addictions - some stronger than others.  The question has to be,'Is the addiction standing between them (or me) and the Lord?  Am I serving the Lord or am I serving the addition?  'Am I an enabler or am I a pray-er? 
+
PRAY FOR LOVED ONES
This page is dedicated to those who suffer life changing addictions or have loved ones who suffer from life changing addictions. Every one is a victim. We offer scripture, prayer and support with hopes the living word of God will be the source of encouragement, self forgiveness and, healing.

POWERFUL PRAYER WARRIORS
No one has to pray alone. We have singled out 4 intercessors, 4 prayer warriors in the battle over Addictions from the Communion of Saints:  ST MICHAEL: in the battle of spiritual warfare, the spirit of this world. ST MAX KOLBE: Drug Addiction, (remembering when at Auschwitz prison he was given a lethal injection of phenol.) substance abuse, food gluttony. VEN. MATT TALBOT: Alcoholism, (also food gluttony.) And ST JOSEPH: ‘Terror of Demons’ For the protection of the family unity (Family: Abortion, Porn, Incest, Adultery, Rape, Same Sex Attractions). Smoking, all health destroying habits including gambling.
+
1 PETER  5:8-9

 8  Be sober and vigilant. Your opponent the devil is pro wling around like a roaring lion looking for (someone) to devour. 9  Resist him, steadfast in faith, knowing that your fellow believers throughout the world undergo the same sufferings.
 +
POPE BENEDICT XVI
TO DRUG DEALERS:
  'Human dignity cannot be trampled upon in this way.  God will call you to account for your deeds.'
 +
FOR US, CHRIST
 CARRYIES OUR CROSS
+
INTERCESSORY PRAYER FROM ABOVE
Here we have used the medal of Christ carrying the 'cross of addiction' as a powerful sign of redemptive suffering. The fullness of the body of Christ is a treasure to behold. The fullness of the body of Christ is more powerful than our sins. The power of intercessory prayer that comes  from us, the living on Earth (Militant), loved ones in Purgatory (Penetent) and those in Heaven (Triumphant) cannot be denied. Redemptive suffering is a most powerful gift. 
 +
PHILIPPIANS 4:8
  Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
 +

~ ST MICHAEL ~
 WHO IS MICHAEL the ARCHANGEL?
(feast day 29 September)
Intercessor against temptations of worldly addictions
(see 7 deadly sins)
+
Guido Reni's archangel Michael
(in the Capuchin church of Santa Maria della Concezione, Rome, 1636
+
WHO IS LIKE GOD?
St. Michael means, "Who is Like God".  He is the Archangel spoken of in Daniel 12:1: "1  At that time there shall arise Michael, the great prince, guardian of your people; It shall be a time unsurpassed in distress since nations began until that time. At that time your people shall escape, everyone who is found written in the book."
+
Are we in those times?  Are we seeking - being lured by - worldly answers over worldly problems more than ever before? The evil one is threatened by what we can do for others and for the Lord. He wants to seek and destroy who we are and who we have been called to be. He wants to divert us through addictions. 
+
This alone gives St Michael and his angels the power to protect each of us from the evil one. From guardian angel through the 9 choirs of angels under the Prince of Angels, Michael we are protected through intercessory prayer.
 +
WISDOM 2:23,24
  23  For God formed man to be imperishable; the image of his own nature he made him.  24 But by the envy of the devil, death entered the world, and they who are in his possession experience it.
 +
1 CORINTHIANS 6:19,20
  --- 19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20  For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.
 +
ISAIAH 40:31
  "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as EAGLES. They shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

QUOTES
ST. MAX KOLBE
  "No one in the world can change truth. What we can and should do is seek truth and serve it when we have found it. The real conflict is within. Beyond the armies of occupation and the hectacombs of the extermination camps, two irreconcilable armies lie in the depth of every soul. 
 +
  And of what use are the victories of the battlefield if we are defeated in our innermost selves?"
 +
PHILIPPIANS 2:12,13 
12 So then, my beloved, obedient as you have always been, not only when I am present but all the more now when I am absent, work out your salvation with fear and trembling. 13  For God is the one who, for his good purpose, works in you both to desire and to work.
+
ROMANS 12:2
   12  Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect.

 +
JAMES 1:14-15

~ ST JOSEPH 'Terror of Demons' ~
  WHO IS JOSEPH, SPOUSE 
OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN?
(feast days: 19 March, the worker, 1 May)
Intercessor for family life against abortion, porn, incest, adultery, rape and same sex attractions.
+
HOLY FAMILY WITH HOLY SPIRIT
(Murillo - 1675 - 1682) National Gallery of London
+
Little is known about St Joseph, the chosen father of Jesus. The last known scripture tells of the holy family presenting 12 year old Jesus at the temple. Joseph is the patron of the church, of husbands, fathers and family life. Some healing may require generational healing.
+
FROM OSJOSEPH org.
  "As Joseph protected the physical body of the child Jesus on earth, so does he continue to protect, through his intercessory prayer from heaven, the mystical body of Christ, the Church. As the mother of Christ is called mother of the Church, so also her husband, the guardian of Christ, is called the protector of the Church.'
 +
1 CHRONICLES 6:13-16
  Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take Christ's members and make them the members of a prostitute? 6 Of course not!  16  (Or) do you not know that anyone who joins himself to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For "the two," it says, "will become one flesh."  17  But whoever is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. 
+
18 Avoid immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the immoral person sins against his own body. 19  Do you not know that your body is a temple 8 of the holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?  20 For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body. 
 +
1 JOHN 2:16 
  "For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world.

~  NOVENA ~
  ---- PRAYER TO ST JOSEPH ----
Dear St. Joseph, you who have power to render possible even things which are considered impossible, come to our aid in our present trouble and distress. Take this important and difficult affair under thy particular protection, that it may end happily. ( ____________ mention your request)
+
Dear St. Joseph, all our confidence is in you. Let it not be said that we would invoke you in vain; and since you are so powerful with Jesus and Mary, show that your goodness equals your power. Amen.



  FORGIVENESS
Bless the Lord, my soul, all my being , bless his holy name! 2 Bless the Lord my soul, do not forget all the gifts of God. 3. Who pardons all  your sins, heals all  your ills, 4 Delivers your life from the pit, surrounds you with love and compassion, 5 Fills your days with good things, your youth is renewed like the eagles 6. the Lord does righteous deeds, brings justice to all the oppressed.  Psalms 103.



  CATHOLIC SERENTIY PRAYER
 God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. 
+
Living one day at a time;  Enjoying one moment at a time;  Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;  Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;  Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen. - Reinhold Niebuhr 



  SPIRITUAL HEALING
 ADDICTIONS IN OUR LIFE AND THE LIFE OF OUR LOVED ONES MAY REQUIRE SPIRITUAL HEALING SUCH AS GENERATIONAL HEALING.  IN VERY RARE CASES, EXORCISM.  BUT INTERCESSION OF THE SAINTS ABOVE IS A BEGINNING. "WHOEVER CLINGS TO ME, I WILL DELIVER --- "
+
1 You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, 2 Say to the LORD, "My refuge and fortress, my God in whom I trust." 3  God will rescue you from the fowler's snare, from the destroying plague,  4  Will shelter you with pinions, spread wings that you may take refuge; God's faithfulness is a protecting shield. 
+
5  You shall not fear the terror of the night nor the arrow that flies by day,  6  Nor the pestilence that roams in darkness, nor the plague that ravages at noon.  7  Though a thousand fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, near you it shall not come.  8  You need simply watch; the punishment of the wicked you will see.  9 You have the LORD for your refuge; you have made the Most High your stronghold. 
+
10  No evil shall befall you, no affliction come near your tent.  11  For God commands the angels to guard you in all your ways.  12  With their hands they shall support you, lest you strike your foot against a stone.  13  You shall tread upon the asp and the viper, trample the lion and the dragon. 
+
PSALM 91:14-16
   14  Whoever clings to me I will deliver; whoever knows my name I will set on high.  15  All who call upon me I will answer; I will be with them in distress; I will deliver them and give them honor. 16  With length of days I will satisfy them and show them my saving power.
