Prayer to The Blessed Virgin Mary, Untier of Knots

Holy Mary, Mother of Fairest Love, Mother, whose hands are constantly at work for the welfare of your children, turn your compassionate eyes towards us. Mary, our Mother, God has charged you with untangling the knots in the lives of his children; into your hands we place the ribbon of our life. There is no knot that cannot be untangled by your fingers.

Compassionate Mother, by the power of your intercession with Jesus, your dear Son and our Redeemer, take into your hands today this knot (Name it, if possible). I beg you to untangle it for ever, for the glory of God. We hope in the love of your maternal heart. Free us from all that hinders us from drawing closer to Christ and to each other. Receive our prayer, preserve us, guide us, protect us. Free us from the entanglements and snares of the Evil Once. For you are our safe refuge.

Prayer to St Anthony

Almighty God, you have given Saint Anthony to your people as an outstanding preacher and a ready helper in time of need.
With his help, may we follow the Gospel of Christ and know the help of your grace in every difficulty.
Through Christ our Lord,

St Anthony, loved and honoured by the Divine Child: obtain what we ask of you.
St Anthony, powerful in word and work: obtain what we ask of you.
St Anthony, attentive to those who invoke you: obtain what we ask of you.
