A once obscure little novena from centuries long ago, is now spreading throughout the world. It is fascinating to know that Pope Francis is instrumental in its soaring popularity. When it was revealed that is was a favorite devotion of his, the entire world began to embrace…Our Lady Undoer of Knots. The beautiful image depicts Our Lady being handed a knotted white ribbon by an angel. Our Lady is working to untie the knots in the ribbon symbolizing the knots and problems in our own lives. As she carefully and lovingly unties the knots, another angel is receiving the smooth and untied ribbon from her gentle hands. The idea that we can confidently bring the incredibly tangled and in snarled knots of our own lives to Mary and she patiently and tirelessly works to pull the knots apart until at last, the ribbon is smooth and cleared, is one of the most comforting aspects of this devotion. Many have claimed it is truly one of the most miraculous novenas they have encountered. Although you may not have heard of it yet…why not try this powerful prayer. A few more prayers certainly cannot hurt anyway. Think of what knot in your life is creating pain for you then turn over your problem to Mary as she works on the knot she will point you to her son, Jesus. Mary Undoer of Knots. That's Our Focus!
