Kitchen Catechism: Prayers
(A favorite prayer of Pope Francis)
Mary, Undoer of Knots
O Virgin Mary, faithful Mother who never refuses
to come to the aid of your children;
Mother whose hands never cease to help,
because they are moved by the loving kindness
that exists in your Immaculate Heart;
Cast your eyes of compassion upon me,
and see the snarl of knots that exist in my life.
You know all the pains and sorrows
caused by these tangled knots.
Mary, my Mother, I entrust to your loving hands
the entire ribbon of my life.
In your hands there is no knot
which cannot be undone.
Most holy Mother,
pray for Divine Assistance to come to my aid.
Take this knot (mention need)
into your maternal hands this day;
I beg you to undo it for the glory of God,
once and for all,
in the name of your divine Son, Jesus Christ.
