Matt Talbot, a “Dubliner” born in Ireland, was an alcoholic before he was 13. When he ran out of money to buy alcohol, he resorted to selling his own clothes and stealing from others, including taking a violin from a blind man. When he was 28, Matt pledged that he would stop drinking for 3 months, a promise that ended up lasting 41 years! Pray to Venerable Matt Talbot, patron of Recovery and “12 Step Programs,” for inner strength and help with addiction(s).
