(And I lied to you. I can and actually did, crack my knuckles)
Tomorrow we begin our first novena of May!
The Novena to Our Lady, Undoer of Knots!
But who is she?
All You Lovely Readers: Well, obviously, it's another title for Our Lady, but come on, Kat. Give us DETAILS!
Well, actually I was looking for better details explaining her and found this lovely article over at Mary, Undoer of Knots.com.
So, here is the link: TA DA!!!!
But I'm also just going to copy and paste part of it here for you all, ok?
"EVE BY HER DISOBEDIENCE, TIED THE KNOT OF DISGRACE FOR THE HUMAN RACE; WHEREAS MARY, BY HER OBEDIENCE, UNDID IT"
"But what are these knots?They are the problems and struggles that we face for which we do not
see a solution. Knots of discord with your family, lack of understanding between parents and
children, disrespect, violence, the knots of deep hurts between husband and wife, the absence of
joy from the home. They are also the knots of anguish and despair of separated couples, the
dissolution of the family, the knots of drug addicted son or daughter, sick or separated from home
or God, the knots of alcoholism, the practice of abortion, depression, unemployment, fear,
solitude. Ah. The knots of our life. How they suffocate the soul, beat us down and betray the
heart's joy and separate us from God."
So there you have it.

Yep. That big woddy ball DOES look kind of like my life....
