On the fifth day of the Novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots, we ask Mary to intercede for us, that Christ may send His Holy Spirit upon us. Just as the Blessed Virgin and the Apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Sunday, changing their lives forever, we hope to abandon all of our vices and embrace the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

You should end every day of the novena with the Prayer to Mary, Undoer of Knots. For complete instructions on how to pray the novena, see the Novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots. You can also sign up for a daily reminder e-mail to aid you in praying the Novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots.

Meditation for the Fifth Day of the Novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots

Mother, Undoer of Knots, generous and compassionate, I come to You today to once again entrust this knot [mention your request here] in my life to you and to ask the divine wisdom to undo, under the light of the Holy Spirit, this snarl of problems. No one ever saw you angry; to the contrary, your words were so charged with sweetness that the Holy Spirit was manifested on your lips. Take away from me the bitterness, anger, and hatred which this knot has caused me. Give me, O dearest Mother, some of the sweetness and wisdom that is all silently reflected in your heart. And just as you were present at Pentecost, ask Jesus to send me a new presence of the Holy Spirit at this moment in my life. Holy Spirit, come upon me!



Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.
