Daily Consecration Prayer: 

 I consencrate myself and my family To Jesus through Mary ,With my Lord and my God, By body and blood, soul and divinity, with the Holy Spirit, Together with all the saints and Angels in Heaven. And my guardian angels here on earth, To become a Saint, as Mary’s instrument of Grace , for the Salvation of souls Amen

 Consecration to Mary: 

 My Queen and my Mother, I give myself entirely to you; and to show my devotion to you, I consecrate to you this day my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart, my whole being without reserve. Wherefore, good Mother, as I am your own, keep me, guard me, as your property and possession. Amen.

 “Oh Mary , My Mother conceived without sin, pray for us, who have recourse to thee”

 “Continue to Pray the Rosary everyday” -Our Lady of Fatima

I love the title of “Our Lady Undoer of Knots.” Because when you’re a little kid, who do you bring your knotted yo-yo or shoelace or necklace to? Your mother. And while we may not all be little kids anymore and we may not have to deal with knotted yo-yos or shoelaces or necklaces, we still have all sorts of knots in our lives. 

Like little children, we bring our knots to our Mother, Mary. She undoes them, and helps her beloved children, like any good mother would. 

Mary, however, accepts, she obeys, she humbles herself before the living Truth itself, a Presence, a Beauty, a Life, a Call so overwhelmingly evident that it makes the notion of “dependence” an empty one - or rather identical and coextensive with that of freedom. For as long as freedom is nothing but the other side of dependence - as long as freedom itself depends on dependence for meaning, it is also an empty notion.
