The Unfailing Novena to Mary Our Lady Untier (Undoer) of Knots is a wonderful nine-day prayer to Our Lady. One of the fastest growing Marian Devotions in the world, this novena is truly inspiring and life-changing. Pope Francis’ favorite Novena. After the Novena to Divine Mercy, this novena is a beautiful way to draw into the divine life. Saint Irenaeus wrote that, “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.” Pray this novena with great confidence to untie the knots in your life, whether they have to do with relationships, addiction, habits, unemployment, or any other situation that seems to be stubbornly getting tighter and tighter.
