Mary Undoer of Knots Feast Day is September 28th
Novena Begins September 20th
Say everyday for all nine days; let us know your miracle!
Dearest Holy Mother Mary, you undo the knots that cripple your children. Extend your merciful hands to me. I entrust to you today this knot and all the negative consequences that it imposes on my life.
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 caress your beloved children because they are moved by divine love and the immense mercy that exists in your Immaculate Heart, cast your compassionate eyes upon me and see the snarl of knots that exists in my life. You know very well how weak 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 place 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. [Mention your request here]
I beg you to undo it for the glory of God, once for all. You are my greatest hope. O my Lady, you are the only consolation God gives me, the fortification of my feeble strength, the enrichment of my poverty, and, with Christ, the freedom from my chains. Hear my plea. Keep me, guide me, and protect me, o safe refuge!
Our Lady, Undoer of Knots, pray for me. Amen
First Responder Bricks
We have set aside the area around the flagpole and the garden behind the fireplace for bricks dedicated to our First Responders. The very first two have now been installed. If you want to honor your First Responder--living or deceased--

O Immaculata, Be Present to Us!
“I am the handmaid of the Lord, let it be done to me according to your word.” –Luke 1:38
called the Marian sanctuaries — “spiritual clinics.” We bring our ailments: living without God as the center of our lives, lack of mercy and compassion, lack of appreciation of the gift of life. All weaken our souls. Powerful conversions occur at these shrines through God’s grace and the maternal intercession of the Mother of God. Healings take place by God through His Word. “Patients” encounter Jesus in the sacrament of reconciliation and the Holy Eucharist. Visit these privileged places to encounter Christ and rediscover your sense of baptismal vocation and to hear its saving call.
Reflection: Visit a shrine or church dedicated to Mary. Deepen your love for Mary Immaculate, so that her maternal embrace may greet you upon your death. Join with St. Bonaventure in praying:
“I ask thee, O Mary, for the glory of thy name, to come and meet my soul when it is departing from this world, and to take it in your arms.”
