Collection: Our Lady, Untier of Knots
ARTIST: Br. Mickey McGrath, OSFS
Thanks to Pope Francis, who has deep devotion to Mary under this title, Our Lady, Untier of Knots has become a source of hope and inspiration for people around the world. We each have lots of knots to untangle in these anxious and unsettling times, both personally and globally, in our nation and in our church.
I have created this image as a prayerful and hope-filled response to the griefs and anxieties which have become little knots in my own heart and soul. May Our Lady, Untier of Knots bring you the same awareness of peace, beauty, and God’s abiding love.

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, Untier of Knots for undoing the knot of rancor in my heart and the knot which I now present to you. Amen.
Mary, Untier of Knots, pray for me.
