“The Virgin Mary, “cause of our joy” always brings us back to joy in the Lord, who comes to free us from so many interior and exterior slaveries.” – Pope Francis
Today we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady Untier of Knots. While in Philadelphia last week for the Pope’s visit, I saw tens of thousands of “prayer knots” next to the Cathedral. People were writing down their seemingly impossible petitions and asking Our Lady to ask her Son Jesus to untie them!
What knot would you like Jesus to untie in your life? Ask his Mother to help you.
