This beautiful and powerful prayer to the Virgin Mary can be recited at any moment of our life, especially when facing difficulties. It was composed by Father Juan Ramón Celeiro, who is now our Pope Francis. You can also pray the full novena to Mary, who unties knots.
“Holy Mary, full of God’s presence during the day of your life, you accepted with full humility the Father’s will, and the devil was never capable of tying you up with his confusion.
Once with your Son you interceded for our difficulties, and full of kindness and patience, you gave us an example of how to untie the knots in our life.
By remaining forever Our Mother, you put in order and make more clear the ties that link us to the Lord.
Holy Mother, Mother of God and our Mother, to you who untie with a motherly heart the knots of our life, we pray to you to receive in your hands... (name the person here), and to free (them) of the knots and confusion with which our enemy attacks.
Through your grace, your intercession and your example deliver us from all evil, Our Lady, and untie the knots that prevent us from being united with God, so that we, free from sin and error, may find Him in all things, may have our hearts placed in Him, and may serve Him always in our brothers and sisters.
Mary, who unties knots, pray for us”
This prayer is part of the Marian devotion, originated from a vision of a painting of the Virgin Mary. Pope Francis had this vision during his studies in Germany.
Father Hieronymus Ambrosius Langenmantel ordered this painting in the XVIII century. It portrays the gentleness and compassion with which the Mother of Christ has answered the prayers of a couple going through hardships. The novena to Mary, undoer of knots is one of the most famous marian novenas today.
