Have a complicated life situation that you'd like to unravel? Join me in a novena!

Good morning all! I've written about my devotion to Our Lady Undoer of Knots before, but I thought it bore repeating today since this is officially day 1 of the novena as organized by Pray More Novenas. With that site, you can sign up to receive an email each day with the prayers all included, and of course it also serves double duty as a reminder so that you don't forget a day. Though, who is it out there *forgetting* days in a novena and then scrambling to "catch up" on days or otherwise counting a novena as two full weeks to make up for neglected days? Slackers!

*look of innocence*

I know that I absolutely love Pray More Novenas and I'm permanently signed up for all of their novenas. I don't pray all of them (sometimes I'm praying another novena at the time, or otherwise focusing on something different at the time) but I do pray most of them. They put out about one a month, and I love the feeling that I'm praying along with a much larger community.

And Our Lady Undoer of Knots is just such a favorite of mine. Especially thorny situation in your life that's been festering along for nigh a decade? Something you're super worried about, and you don't see how it could turn out particularly well? All perfect fodder for Our Lady Undoer of Knots. I can just see Mary, our mother, up in heaven as I type:

"Good grief, she's done it *again*. Time for another intervention!"


So if you're intrigued, do go sign up! We can pray together, and today is the perfect day to get started.

Some amusing dance updates have transpired this week, and I plan a dancey post for tomorrow, so come one back if you enjoy those! But in the meantime, if you're praying the Our Lady Undoer of Knots novena, leave a comment and let me know!


  1. I often do chaining on my novenas and just keep going - when I complete one I start another - though I do skip days so as to hit major feasts.

    Of course there is ONE which we OUGHT NOT MISS - the first novena of all, the one which was ordered by Our Lord Himself - the nine days after Ascension to the vigil of Pentecost, which we ought to do in union with the whole Church, begging our Lord for the Holy Spirit.

  2. I definitely have a few "knots" at the moment, so I immediately signed up for this after reading your post! Thanks!

  3. I'm praying the novena. I got the email from Pray More Novenas this morning and decided to pray it for a family friend who is dealing with cancer for the 4th time.


Thank you for commenting! I read and appreciate every single one, and I will respond to each one personally!
