Daily Meditations

First Day

Dearest Holy Mother, Most Holy Mary,
you undo the knots that bind your children.
Extend your merciful hands to me.
I entrust to You today this knot
and all the negative consequences that it provokes in my life.
I give you this knot that torments me and makes me unhappy
and so impedes me from uniting myself to You and to Your Son Jesus, my Savior.

I run to You, Mary, Undoer of Knots, because I trust you
and because I know that you never despise a sinning child
who comes to ask you for help.

I believe that you can undo this knot because Jesus grants you everything.

I believe that you want to undo this knot because you are my Mother.

I believe that You will do this because you love me with eternal love.

Thank you, Dear Mother.

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.

"The one who seeks grace finds it in Mary's hands."
Concluding prayer.

Second Day

Mary, Beloved Mother, channel of all grace,
I return my heart to You today,
recognizing that I am a sinner in need of your help.
Many times I lose the graces you grant me
because of my sins of egotism, pride, rancor,
and my lack of generosity and humility.
I pray today, Mary, Undoer of knots,
that You will ask your Son, Jesus,
to grant me a pure, detached, humble, and trusting heart.
I will live today practicing these virtues
and offering you this as a sign of my love for You.
I place my whole life in Your hands
along with the particular knot
that keeps me from reflecting the glory of God today.

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.

"Mary offered all the moments of her day to God."
Concluding prayer.

Third Day

Contemplative 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 these knots in my life
and all the rancor and resentment they have caused in me.

Almighty Father, I ask Your forgiveness for my sins.
Help me now to forgive all the persons who consciously or unconsciously provoked these knots.
Give me also the grace to forgive myself for having cultivated anger and resentment against them.
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,
because I have been granted forgiveness for my sins,
I now forgive these persons and myself, forever.

Thank you, Mary, Undoer of Knots for undoing the knot of rancor in my heart
and all of the other troubles which I now present to you. Amen.

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.

"Turn to Mary, you who desire grace."
Concluding prayer.

Fourth Day

Dearest Holy Mother,
you are generous with all who seek you, have mercy on me.
I trust you will untie these knots which rob the peace of my heart,
paralyze my soul
and keep me from going to my Lord and serving Him with my life.

Undo these knots in my love, O mother,
and ask Jesus to heal my paralytic faith
which becomes downhearted when I stumble over stones on the road.
Along with you, dearest Mother, may I see these stones as friends.
Not murmuring against them anymore,
but giving endless thanks for them,
may I smile trustingly in your power.

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.

"Mary is the Sun and no one is deprived of her warmth."
Concluding prayer.

Fifth Day

Mother, Undoer of Knots, generous and compassionate,
I come to You today to once again entrust the knots in my life to you
and to ask the divine wisdom to undo,
under the light of the Holy Spirit,
all of these emotional and spiritual snarls in my heart.
No one ever saw you angry;
to the contrary, your words were so charged with sweetness
that the Holy Spirit was manifested on your lips.
Take away from me the bitterness, anger, and hatred which these knots have caused me.
Give me, O dearest Mother,
some of the sweetness and wisdom that is silently reflected in your heart.
And just as you were present at Pentecost,
ask Jesus to send me a new presence of the Holy Spirit
at this moment in my life.
Holy Spirit, come upon me!

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.

"Mary, with God, is powerful."
Concluding prayer.

Sixth Day

Queen of Mercy, I entrust to you these knots in my life
and I ask you to give me a heart that is patient until you undo them.
Teach me to persevere
in the living word of Jesus,
in the Eucharist,
and in the Sacrament of Confession;
stay with me and prepare my heart to celebrate with the angels
the grace that will be granted to me.
Amen! Alleluia!

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.

"You are beautiful, Mary, and there is no stain of sin in You."
Concluding prayer.

Seventh Day

Mother Most Pure,
I come to You today to beg you to undo these knots in my life
and free me from the snares of evil.
God has granted you great power over all the demons.
I renounce all of them today,
every connection I have had with them,
and I proclaim Jesus as my one and only Lord and Savior.
Mary, Undoer of Knots,
crush the evil one's head
and destroy the traps he has set for me by these difficulties.
Thank you, dearest Mother.

Most Precious Blood of Jesus, free me!

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.

"You are the glory of Jerusalem, the joy of our people."
Concluding prayer.

Eighth Day

Virgin Mother of God, overflowing with mercy,
have mercy on your child and undo these knots in my life.
I need you to visit me, just as you visited Elizabeth.
Bring me Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Teach me to practice the virtues of courage, joyfulness, humility and faith,
and, like Elizabeth, to be filled with the Holy Spirit through you.
Make me joyfully rest on your bosom, Mary.
I consecrate myself to you as my mother, Queen, and friend.
I give you my heart and everything I have--
my home and family, and my material and spiritual goods.
I am yours forever.
Put your heart in me so that I can do everything Jesus tells me.

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.

"Let us go, therefore, full of trust, to the throne of grace."
Concluding prayer.

Ninth Day

Most Holy Mary, our Advocate, Undoer of Knots,
I come today to thank you for undoing this knot in my life.
You know very well the suffering it has caused me.
Thank you for working with tender mercy, Mother, to unsnarl my heart
and to dry the tears in my eyes;
you receive me in your arms
and make it possible for me to receive once again the divine grace.

Mary, Undoer of Knots, dearest Mother,
I thank you for unraveling the knots in my life.
Wrap me in your mantle of love,
keep me under your protection,
enlighten me with your peace!

Amen.

"Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me."

Closing Prayer

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 serve your beloved children
because you are moved by the divine love
and immense mercy that exists in your heart,
cast your compassionate eyes upon me
and see the snarl of knots that exist in my life.

You know very well
how desperate I am,
how much pain I feel,
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 the ribbon of my life in your hands.

No one, not even the evil one himself,
can take me 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 Redeemer, Jesus,
please take the whole length of my life into your hands today.
For the glory of God, I beg you to undo all of the knots that are in my heart,
once and for all.
You are my 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 Jesus your Son, freedom from my chains.

Hear my plea.

Keep me, guide me, protect me, O safe refuge!

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.
