Novena to Our Lady, Undoer of Knots for A Special Intention

Dear Apostoli Viae Family and Friends,

As I mentioned during our recent Sojourners meeting, we are in the midst of an exciting opportunity to obtain land and facilities that will serve as a headquarters, retreat center, religious housing, and so much more for the Apostoli Viae Community and the Avila Institute. We see God's hand in all of this and are eager to see what He has in store for us.

However, the situation is not without its knots. 

We have and will continue to pursue what is humanly possible in this situation, but we need to place all of our work and those matters beyond our control in God's hands. We'd like to turn, as a community, to Our Lady, Undoer of Knots, to ask her to smooth out the many knots that we face. For the sake of brevity, our challenges are both human and institutional. Much of the property is unencumbered by debt. A small but significant portion needs to be recovered out of a problematic situation. As I write this I recall the challenge Our Blessed Mother helped to solve at the wedding feast at Cana. We need that kind of intercession now from her and from you. We need the Lord to hear all of us as we look to Him to move in miraculous ways as He did when He turned water into wine.

Will you join us in this prayer for these intentions?

Below is a beautiful Novena to Our Lady, of Undoer Knots that incorporates the Most Holy Rosary--appropriate as we end this month, dedicated to the Rosary. We've included a printable version of the Novena at the very bottom, which you can print, and have also included links for each day's prayer to recordings of the Novena.

Act of Contrition

     O my God I am heartily sorry for having offended you. I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of Hell. But most of all, because I offended you, oh my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.


First 3 decades of the Rosary of the Day

Meditation for Day 1 


     Dearest Holy Mother, Most Holy Mary, you undo the knots that suffocate your children, extend your merciful hands to me. I entrust to You today this knot....and all the negative consequences that it provokes in my life. I give you this knot that torments me and makes me unhappy and so impedes me from uniting myself to You and Your Son Jesus, my Savior.
     I run to You, Mary, Undoer of Knots because I trust you and I know that you never despise a sinning child who comes to ask you for help. I believe that you can undo this knot because Jesus grants you everything. I believe that you want to undo this knot because you are my Mother. I believe that You will do this because you love me with eternal love. 


Thank you, Dear Mother.


Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for us and our intentions.

The one who seeks grace, finds it in Mary's hands.

PRAYER TO MARY, UNDOER OF KNOTS (Closing Prayer)


     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!

Meditation for Day 2

     Mary, Beloved Mother, channel of all grace, I return to You today my heart, recognizing that I am a sinner in need of your help. Many times I lose the graces you grant me because of my sins of egoism, pride, rancor and my lack of generosity and humility. I turn to You today, Mary, Undoer of knots, for You to ask your Son Jesus to grant me a pure, divested, humble and trusting heart. I will live today practicing these virtues and offering you this as a sign of my love for You. I entrust into Your hands this knot (...describe) which keeps me from reflecting the glory of God. 


Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for us and our intentions.

Mary offered all the moments of her day to God.

     Meditating Mother, Queen of heaven, in whose hands the treasures of the King are found, turn your merciful eyes upon me today. I entrust into your holy hands this knot in my life...and all the rancor and resentment it has caused in me. I ask Your forgiveness, God the Father, for my sin. Help me now to forgive all the persons who consciously or unconsciously provoked this knot. Give me, also, the grace to forgive me for having provoked this knot. Only in this way can You undo it. Before You, dearest Mother, and in the name of Your Son Jesus, my Savior, who has suffered so many offenses, having been granted forgiveness, I now forgive these persons...and myself, forever. Thank you, Mary, Undoer of Knots for undoing the knot of rancor in my heart and the knot which I now present to you. Amen.


Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for us and our intentions.

     Dearest Holy Mother, you are generous with all who seek you, have mercy on me. I entrust into your hands this knot which robs the peace of my heart, paralyzes my soul and keeps me from going to my Lord and serving Him with my life.

     Undo this knot in my love...., O mother, and ask Jesus to heal my paralytic faith which gets downhearted with the stones on the road. Along with you, dearest Mother, may I see these stones as friends. Not murmuring against them anymore but giving endless thanks for them, may I smile trustingly in your power.

     Mother, Undoer of Knots, generous and compassionate, I come to You today to once again entrust this knot...in my life to you and to ask the divine wisdom to undo, under the light of the Holy Spirit, this snarl of problems. No one ever saw you angry; to the contrary, your words were so charged with sweetness that the Holy Spirit was manifested on your lips. Take away from me the bitterness, anger and hatred which this knot has caused me. Give me, o dearest Mother, some of the sweetness and wisdom that is all silently reflected in your heart. And just as you were present at Pentecost, ask Jesus to send me a new presence of the Holy Spirit at this moment in my life. Holy Spirit, come upon me!
