Today (wed. April 22, 2015) begins the beautiful Novena Mary Undoer of Knots. This by far is one of my most favorite novenas; it's power and beauty leaves me in awe. Like many I find myself in a quandary of worries,needs, concerns, in need of healing and forgiveness; I look forward to beginning this novena and look forward to the peace and grace this novena can give.
Our world is in desperate need of Mary's intercession and it is only by her hands to her Son can any of the evil in the world be made right. Through our active call to our beloved Mother our world and hearts can be changed. Through many crosses in my life over the past three years I have come to see and believe in the value and need in running towards the cross and not away.
After coming close to losing my own life and a surgery that has forever changed my life and now just seven months young after losing my Dad I see no other way than the way of the cross. But how can we carry these crosses in our life? How can we thrive and not merely survive life's daily heartaches? To answer simply and profoundly I firmly believe it is Mary. Mary in her beautiful gentleness has the most miraculous ways of undoing the knots, hurts, pains and sadnesses of our lives. Like with her Son she will walk each step of our struggles as we carry our cross. Run towards your cross and you will run into the loving arms of Jesus and His ever Beautiful Mother, Mary, Our Mother Mary.
Have not doubt she will undo any and all knots in our lives and will do so more glorious than we could have ever imagined. We mustn't be afraid to give all and hold nothing back...she is a mother who knows our hearts; sometimes better then we may realize. Seek out Our Mother Mary she is waiting to forever hold your hand and to never let go.
