Virgin Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for us!

Look at this image of Our Lady.  The angle on the right holds the ribbon of our life, filled with knots and tangles.  The angel on the left shows the ribbon smooth, and free of all knots...after it has passed through the loving and devoted hands of Our Lady, Queen and Mother.  Our lives are filled with confusions, temptations, trials, and many obstacles; we knot our ribbons so tightly that it becomes impossible to undo the knots we've created.  But Our Lord, dying upon the cross, gave us a special Gift.  "Behold your Mother."  No matter how big our worry, or how challenging our obstacles, Our Mother in Heaven CAN and WILL untie the knot for us, if only we bring our poor, pitifully knotted ribbon to her loving hands. 

Oh Mary, Virgin and Mother, untie our knotted lives, and lead us to Heaven!
