The prayer recommended by Pope Francis
In times of darkness and despair, the Catholic knows that he can count on the intercession of his Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, with Jesus. This is the prayer that, at these times, Pope Francis recommends:
A Prayer to Our Lady Unleashing Us
Holy Mary, full of the presence of God,
during the days of your life
you accepted with all humility
the will of the Father
and the evil one could never be involved
with its confusions.
Together with your Son
interceded for our difficulties
and, with all simplicity and patience,
give us the example of how to unfold
the lines of our life.
And, in remaining forever as our Mother,
put in order and make it clearer
the bonds that unite us to the Lord.
Holy Mary, Mother of God and our Mother,
to you, that with your maternal heart
untie the nodes that disturb our life,
receive into your hands
………. ( say the full name of the person
or the node to be untied )
and deliver us from bondage and confusion
with which our enemy punishes us.
By your grace, through your intercession,
with your example,
deliver us from all evil, Our Lady,
and untie the knots that keep us from
to unite with God,
so that, free from all confusion and error,
we praise Him in all things,
let us put our heart in him
and may we always serve Him in our brethren.
