We all have some “knots” in our lives. Would you like some support in getting rid of a few of your knots?
Pray More Novenas will begin The Novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots starting this Thursday, April 22. If you are not familiar with a novena, it is nine days of prayer and meditation usually asking God for special prayer requests or petitions which lead us closer to Jesus. Novenas are often used to ask a specific saint for their divine and spiritual assistance.
Mary, Undoer of Knots has become popular ever since Pope Francis encouraged the devotion in Argentina, and then spoke about it during his first year as pontiff. The theology of the devotion goes back to the second century. Saint Irenaeus wrote that, “The knot of Eve’s disobedience was untied by the obedience of Mary; what the virgin Eve bound by her unbelief, the Virgin Mary loosened by her faith.”
Mary’s faith unties the knot of sin.
Join in prayer that the Blessed Virgin Mary will intercede for us all, to untie the knots of sin in our lives – so that we may be purified and grow ever closer to God. Pray More Novenas will send you the daily prayers when you sign up here. We will pray for all the knots in our lives — all of our worries, pains and sufferings — that Mary, our Mother, may untie them and pray for us.
