Dearest Holy Mother, Most Holy Mary,
you undo the knots that suffocate your children,
extend your merciful hands to me.
I entrust to You today this knot....

[Here you mention the cross that you have...]

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 Your Son Jesus, my Savior.

I run to You, Mary,
Undoer of Knots because I trust you
and 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.

PRAYER TO MARY, UNDOER OF KNOTS
(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 they 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,
my pain 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 entrust into your hands the ribbon of my life.
No one, not even the evil one himself,
can take it 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 Liberator, Jesus,
take into your hands today this knot...

[Here you mention the cross that you have...]

I beg you to undo it for the glory of God,
once 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 destitution
and with Christ the freedom from my chains.
Hear my plea.

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