Novenas have never been my thing. They have never been a prayer form that spoke to me until I felt compelled to start one the other day: Mary, Undoer of Knots on the Hallow app.
I found myself bubbling over in tears and deeply touched as Sr. Miriam James led us listeners through this beautiful prayer experience. I can’t remember ever being touched that much by a Novena or Marian devotion.
What led me to this Novena? The name primarily. I have knots in my life I would love undone and can’t seem to “undo” them with my own strength. Also, I have heard others share testimony that their own knots were transformed. Maybe, I thought, I too would be changed by this prayer.
Unbeknownst to me, I realized later that the Holy Spirit had led me to this Novena which was going to culminate on the Feast of the Assumption, this coming Sunday. How remarkable...
For most of my life I’ve struggled with Marian devotions, but Mary always keeps coming back into my prayer life, and surprising me in unexpected ways. Perhaps she is trying to do the same with you. Will you open up to Mary?
Something to ponder as we approach this Marian feast day.
