Sean Casey was an alcoholic for 30 years. Drink had completely taken over his thinking and every aspect of his life. It started when he was serving as an altar boy and became a life-controlling habit.
At one stage the torment of voices in his head drove him to the verge of suicide. He was about to throw himself under a train at Liverpool Street tube station in London when, for some reason, he dropped to his knees on the platform and cried out to God for help.
Later, on returning to Ireland, he visited his sister in Newbridge and she asked some friends to pray for him. When he received prayer he was instantly set free from all desire to drink. That was 18 years ago and he has never had a relapse nor any interest in drink since then. Sean lives in Mullingar and drives a taxi for a living. He will be visiting Roscommon to tell his story on Sunday 27th June at Gleesonís, The Square at 8 pm. This is one of a series of meetings hosted by Hope Community dealing with the topic of spiritual transformation.
The focus is on understanding and inviting the power of the Holy Spirit to change and transform lives in areas where people are struggling. It is open to everyone and there will be prayer ministry for those wanting Godís intervention in their lives. Enquiries (090) 64 89110 or www.hopecommunity.ie
