Even the smallest of misunderstandings can grow into a web of confusion and hurt feelings. Has some issue in your life felt like a knot that only grows tighter?
Mary, of all your lovely names—Immaculate Conception, Cause of Our Joy, Mystical Rose—
the Undoer of Knots calls to the tangled-up world right now.
In these truly painful times, it brings comfort to trust the grace of your hands.
You unravel the knots of cynicism, despair, and hopelessness
with the same soft, holy hands that held your baby
when he was radiant, surrounded by angels above his manger.
Yes, those same perfect hands will untwist the tightest of our knots.
Today, pray for Mary’s intercession to undo whatever knot you may be experiencing.
