Can’t talk to the Son directly…ask His Mom

Mommy Mantra, February 18,2016

Jesus said to his disciples: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. MT 7:7-12

Last night I went to a Lenten talk on prayer.  It fits in so perfectly with today’s Gospelmudokn

It was a great talk, and I was reintroduced to a novena, (series of prayers said over a nine day period), Mary the Undoer of Knots. It is such a perfect novena for moms. (If you like to learn more about the novena, visit Finding God In The Every Day Of Mothering)

How often have we seen troubles with our children, or in our marriage, or our calling to be so difficult that it’s knotty. We can tie ourselves in knots, or be tied up in knots. We can see our problems as a Gordian knot.

I am sharing this novena with you as a gift – one mom to another.
