Pray this special novena to Our Lady Undoer of Knots

When life is knotted, pray this novena with us.

One of Pope Francis’ dearly beloved devotions is to Our Lady Undoer of Knots. The devotion is linked to a painting featuring an image of the Virgin Mary holding a long ribbon and untying the knots in it.

In this devotion, many bring to Mary the “knots” they have in their lives, asking her to “untie” them through her intercession.

Aleteia has recorded a complete Rosary Novena to Our Lady Undoer of Knots that you can follow-along with, praying it for nine consecutive days.

Join us any time of the year to pray this novena! You can start it today and include whatever intention is dearest to your heart at this moment.

As a preview of the novena, here is the closing prayer said each day of the novena.

Virgin Mary, Mother of fair love, Mother who never refuses to come to the aid of a child in need, Mother whose hands never cease to serve your beloved children because they are moved by the divine love and immense mercy that exists in your heart, cast your compassionate eyes upon me and see the snarl of knots that exist in my life.
You know very well how desperate I am, my pain and how I am bound by these knots.
Mary, Mother to whom God entrusted the undoing of the knots in the lives of His children, I entrust into your hands the ribbon of my life.
No one, not even the evil one himself, can take it away from your precious care. In your hands there is no knot that cannot be undone.
Powerful Mother, by your grace and intercessory power with Your Son and My Liberator, Jesus, take into your hands today this knot…I beg you to undo it for the glory of God, once for all, You are my hope.
O my Lady, you are the only consolation God gives me, the fortification of my feeble strength, the enrichment of my destitution and with Christ the freedom from my chains.
Hear my plea.
Keep me, guide me, protect me, o safe refuge!

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me
