Novenato Mary, Undoer of Knots

10:22 AM (7 hours ago)

to me
Let us bring our "knots" to Mary
The biggest question: How do I connect to the Novena?

I have to admit, I wasn't trying to be mysterious, but I have been receiving phone calls and emails from people wanting to know how to connect with us for the novena. My apologies for not making all that clear earlier!
We begin our solemn online novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots on Wednesday and it will continue for 9 days. 

All you need to do is go to this webpage:

You might want to bookmark the page now. On the page is the link to download the prayers and to send prayer intentions. We will livestream the novena at 12 pm and 8 pm right from this page. We will also archive the novena on that page so if you can't join us at those times you can catch up whenever you have a chance.

This novena will be one great procession of prayer in great trust to Our Lady Undoer of Knots. We sisters have a great big unexpected knot, as we've told you. Replacing the generator is a struggle but it must be done by winter. We know also from the many prayer intentions you share with us that your hearts are heavy also with tremendous knots, situations that are so messy they seem impossible to untie. Only Mary can untie them.

So these nine days of our fundraising webathon we dedicate ourselves to praying also for your knots. We're grateful for anyone who can assist us with our webathon and promise our prayers for all. Our "spiritual generator"--a.k.a. our senior sisters--have already started praying for you.
We're beginning the webathon with $6,000 in donations already received.

To those who have already contributed to our goal of $89,000 to replace our broken generator, we offer our grateful thanks.

Everyday we will ask Mary's help in undoing a special kind of knot. 

Day 1: Trust in Mary's intercession and God's care for us
Day 2: For those who struggle with loneliness and depression
Day 3: For those will illnesses of body, mind, and spirit
Day 4: For those who have left the Faith
Day 5: For those who struggle with sin and addiction
Day 6: For those with difficulties in their family life and/or marriage.
Day 7: For those who face financial difficulties or unemployment
Day 8: For those grieving the death of a loved one
Day 9: Prayer that anything that hinders the grace of the Spirit will be removed from the hearts of the disciples of today

Each day of the novena we'll send a short reflection and keep you up-to-date with how the webathon is going.

Until tomorrow, let us entrust all into Mary's hands.

In Christ,
Sr. Kathryn Hermes, FSP
We'd love for you to share this news!
