Novena to Our Lady Undoer of Knots

The devotion to our Lady Undoer of Knots began in the 2nd century with St. Irenaeus. He wrote, "The knot of Eve’s disobedience was untied by the obedience of Mary; what the virgin Eve bound by her unbelief, the Virgin Mary loosened by her faith.”

With this Novena, we pray for Mary, our Advocate, and Helper in moments of affliction, to intercede on our behalf and undo the Knot of an impending execution.
