    Prayer to the Virgin Mary as Untier of Knots

Holy Mary, full of the presence of God, during your life
you accepted with great humility the holy will of the father
and the legacy of your Son our Lord Jesus Christ, and evil
never dared to entangle you with its confusion. Since then
you have interceded for all of our difficulties as you did
at the wedding feast of Cana. With all simplicity and with
patience, you have given us an example of how to untangle
the knots in our complicated lives. By being our mother
forever you arrange and make clear the path that unites us
to Our Lord.

Holy Mary, Mother of God and ours, with your maternal heart,
untie the knots that upset our lives. We ask you to receive
into your hands (here mention your prayer request) and
deliver us from the chains and confusion that restrain us.
Blessed Virgin Mary, through your grace, your intercession
and by your example, deliver us from evil, and untie the
knots that keep us from being united to God. So that free
of all confusion and error, we may find him in all things,
keep him in our hearts, and serve him always in our
brothers and sisters. Mother of Good Counsel pray for us.
Amen.

We begin with our daily prayers, making  the Sign of the Cross and praying the Act of Contrition so that God will enter our hearts, and he will brings us near  to the Virgin Mary.

The Sign of the Cross

            In the name of the Father, and
            of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

            Amen.

Act of Contrition

            O my God, I am heartily sorry for
            having offended you, and I detest
            all my sins, because of Your just
            punishments, but most of all because
            they offend You, my God, who are
            all-good and deserving of all my love.
            I firmly resolve, with the help of
            Your grace, to sin no more and to
            avoid the near occasion of sin.
             Amen
 

Blessed Virgin Mary, the one who unties the knots, in marriage, in people and of  nations, I offer you this novena
requesting the follo-wing intentions:

(mention here the favors that you wish to obtain)


First Day

Bible reading:

 ...« and now she will bear a son. You shall call him 'Jesus' for he will save his people from their sins.»
( Mathew 1, 21 )

Brief Reflection:

Our Lord Jesus, was born of the flesh and blood of the Holy Virgin Mary, spouse of the Holy Spirit. Jesus,  untied the
tongues of the mute, the obstacles to the paralytics, he remove the yoke of the oppressed , and he liberated the
sinners with his death. Jesus, through his Death and Resurrection is the Great Untier of Knots of our humanity united to
sin. His Mother, first disciple and coore-demptrix, will untied our knots.

( Brief meditation: meditate with one decade of the Holy Rosary: One Our Father, 10 Hail Mary’s, One Glory be and
the Prayer to “The Virgin Mary untier of Knots”)

 Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven;
hollowed be thy name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
 

The Hail Mary

            Hail Mary, full of grace,
            the Lord is with thee;
            blessed art thou among women,
            and blessed is the fruit
            of thy womb, Jesus.

            Holy Mary, Mother of God,
            pray for us sinners now
            and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory Be

        Glory be to the Father and to
        the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
        as it was in the beginning, is now
        and ever shall be, world without
        end. Amen

 (Mother Three Times Admirable!)



Second day:

 Bible reading:

 ...« And the Angel said to her in reply, ”The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the most High will
overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God.
( Luke 1, 35 )

Brief Reflection:

The Holy Spirit, Third Person of God, overshadowed the womb of the Virgin Mary full of grace, and the power of
the most High was with her so that she would give birth to our savior made man. That is why the Virgin Mary is
blessed and holy. In her, The Son of God inhabited. ¡ Who better than his Mother, to aid us and help us to
dismantle our tangled conflicts!

Third day:

Bible reading:

 « Mary said, “ Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.  May it be done to me according to your word.
“Then the Angel departed from her.” » ( Luke 1, 38 )

Brief Reflection:

The Virgin Mary meekly undergoes the designs of God, alt-hough with certain reservations. ".. How can this beif
I do not know man?…she accepts, with some concerns. How many doubts will we have when we have moved
away from God, and in our mistakes, we have knitted a useless cobweb of knots. Let us give our griefs to the
council of Mary.

Fourth day:

Bible reading:

«   15 When the angels had left them and gone back to heaven, the
shepherds said to one another, "Let us go as far as Bethlehem and
see what the Lord has made known to us." 16 So they came
hurriedly and found Mary and Joseph with the baby lying in the
manger. 17 On seeing this they related what they had been told
about the child, 18 and all were astonished on hearing the
shepherds.19 As for Mary, she treasured all these messages
and continually pondered over them.» (Luke 2, 15-19)
 

Brief Reflection:

They went to Bethlehem, where they found the Child, “The word made flesh", the only Truth. Let us walk through
our desert, that with the guidence of the Archángel Raphael, that we may come closer to Mary Mother of the
Church, and with her to Jesus.  Little by little, the knots of error that make us prisoners will be untied.
“The Truth shall set us free”. Let us walk in confidence towards our liberation.”

Fifth day:

Bible Reading:

« 7 Ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened. 8 For everyone who
asks, receives; whoever seeks, finds; and the door will be opened to him who knocks. » (Mathew 7, 7-8)

Brief Reflection:

( The Heart of Mary is opened to us, like the door to heaven. We only need to ask for her help and her maternal
arms will open for our tor-tured spirits. In her we will find the solution to our problems, balm for our pain, and
answers to our doubts. Mary our help, intercede for us.)

Sixth day:

Bible reading:

4 Jesus replied, "Woman, your thoughts are not mine! My hour has not yet come." 5 However his mother said to the servants, "Do what-ever he tells you." (John 2, 4-5)

Brief Reflection:

In the wedding feast of Cana , the patient Virgin Mary interce-des for the guest.  With this act, she inaugurates her
Mediation between the Son of God and men. The faithful servant of the Lord, is our most humble and maternal
servant, in our afflictions, despairs, tribulations and wrongs doings. She is the Mediatrix of all graces, to which
we commend ourselves in our intricate problems, that with her maternal hands, she will untie the knots that
still imprison us.

Seventh day:

Bible reading:

“ It was now about noon and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon.”(Luke 23, 44)

Brief Reflection:

The Father’s will is about to be acomplished; Our Lord Jesus Christ will die on the cross for our salvation, in the
promise of his Resurrec-tion. From the darkness the light will shine to illumine us, freedom from darkness.
We already see our problems with more clarity. Our ties loosen, in the measure in which  they conform to the
Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. At this time we are closer to his Mother, the Virgin Mary.

Eighth day:

Bible reading:

« 26 When Jesus saw his Mother, and the disciple whom he loved, he said to his Mother, "Woman,
there is your son." 27 Then he said to the disciple, "There is your mother." And from that moment the
disci-ple took her to his own home. » (John 19, 26-27)

Brief Reflection:

At the moment Jesús went to the Father, he leaves us in the care of his Mother. It is the greatest legacy that Jesús
left to Our Virgin Mary, and when he points out to the disciple he loves, he gives her custody of the whole
humanity. She will be our Advocate, Helper, Benefac-tress, and Mediatrix. The handmaid of the Lord, will
grant us freedom through her intercesión, she will untie the final knots that make us prisoners.

Ninth day:

Bible reading:

 « 14 All of these together gave themselves to constant prayer. With them were some women and also Mary,
the mother of Jesus, and his brothers...» and  »when the day of Pentecost arrived, all were filled with
the Holy Spirit.» (Acts 1:14 and 2:1-4)

Brief Reflection:

Our Father sends the Holy Spirit on the feast of Pentecost , that will feed us in our faith. This is the same faith
that with Mary’s maternal help, will remove the bonds that keep us prisoners. With the light of the Holy Spirit
we see in meridian clarity which of our anguishes had our spirit trapped. The guidance of Saint Michael the
Archangel has always been certain,  Saint Gabriel the Archangel will announce my freedom and Saint Michael
the Archangel, will protect me from any attack. The Evil one (the serpent), overpowered by the presence of Mary,
 lies at her feet, made into a useless knot, unable to touch us.

The Mysteries of Light

21. Moving on from the infancy and the hidden life in Nazareth to the public life of Jesus, our contemplation brings us to those mysteries which may be called in a special way "mysteries of light". Certainly the whole mystery of Christ is a mystery of light. He is the "light of the world" (Jn 8:12). Yet this truth emerges in a special way during the years of his public life, when he proclaims the Gospel of the Kingdom. In proposing to the Christian community five significant moments – "luminous" mysteries – during this phase of Christ's life, I think that the following can be fittingly singled out: (1) his Baptism in the Jordan, (2) his self-manifestation at the wedding of Cana, (3) his proclamation of the Kingdom of God, with his call to conversion, (4) his Transfiguration, and finally, (5) his institution of the Eucharist, as the sacramental expression of the Paschal Mystery.

Each of these mysteries is a revelation of the Kingdom now present in the very person of Jesus. The Baptism in the Jordan is first of all a mystery of light. Here, as Christ descends into the waters, the innocent one who became "sin" for our sake (cf. 2Cor 5:21), the heavens open wide and the voice of the Father declares him the beloved Son (cf. Mt 3:17 and parallels), while the Spirit descends on him to invest him with the mission which he is to carry out. Another mystery of light is the first of the signs, given at Cana (cf. Jn 2:1- 12), when Christ changes water into wine and opens the hearts of the disciples to faith, thanks to the intervention of Mary, the first among believers. Another mystery of light is the preaching by which Jesus proclaims the coming of the Kingdom of God, calls to conversion (cf. Mk 1:15) and forgives the sins of all who draw near to him in humble trust (cf. Mk 2:3-13; Lk 7:47- 48): the inauguration of that ministry of mercy which he continues to exercise until the end of the world, particularly through the Sacrament of Reconciliation which he has entrusted to his Church (cf. Jn 20:22-23). The mystery of light par excellence is the Transfiguration, traditionally believed to have taken place on Mount Tabor. The glory of the Godhead shines forth from the face of Christ as the Father commands the astonished Apostles to "listen to him" (cf. Lk 9:35 and parallels) and to prepare to experience with him the agony of the Passion, so as to come with him to the joy of the Resurrection and a life transfigured by the Holy Spirit. A final mystery of light is the institution of the Eucharist, in which Christ offers his body and blood as food under the signs of bread and wine, and testifies "to the end" his love for humanity (Jn 13:1), for whose salvation he will offer himself in sacrifice.

In these mysteries, apart from the miracle at Cana, the presence of Mary remains in the background. The Gospels make only the briefest reference to her occasional presence at one moment or other during the preaching of Jesus (cf. Mk 3:31-5; Jn 2:12), and they give no indication that she was present at the Last Supper and the institution of the Eucharist. Yet the role she assumed at Cana in some way accompanies Christ throughout his ministry. The revelation made directly by the Father at the Baptism in the Jordan and echoed by John the Baptist is placed upon Mary's lips at Cana, and it becomes the great maternal counsel which Mary addresses to the Church of every age: "Do whatever he tells you" (Jn 2:5). This counsel is a fitting introduction to the words and signs of Christ's public ministry and it forms the Marian foundation of all the "mysteries of light".
