The next novena: for all our worries, pain and suffering

New here? Join us in prayer! Click here to get novena reminders by email!

We hope that each novena we pray together is one more prayer that will bring you closer to Jesus and His comforting love. This next novena should do just that :)

The next novena is The Novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots!

Whenever we grow closer to Jesus’ mother, our mother, we grow closer to Jesus — because Mary always brings us to Jesus. 

We will start praying on Monday, May 9th.

The month of May is actually dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, so it’s a perfect time to ask for her intercession!

As St. Francis de Sales wrote: “Let us run to Mary, and, as her little children, cast ourselves into her arms with a perfect confidence.”

You can sign up to pray this novena with us here:

We will pray for all the knots in our lives — all of our worries, pains and sufferings — that Mary, our Mother, may untie them and pray for us.

We’re looking forward to praying with you and for you! 

God bless you!
