Vigil Prayer, Oct 12, 2013

Pope Francis led a prayer vigil Saturday, October 12, stressing that the Virgin Mary leads Christians to the mercy of God who can untie “all knotted hearts.” Each one of us has “knots” in our souls, caused by sin, said Pope Francis. “These knots take away our peace and serenity...” He acknowledged that some might believe they are without hope and say 'But Father, mine can’t be untied.' “That’s a mistake. All knots in the heart, all knots in the conscience, can be untied.” If we ask Mary, “the woman of faith” for help, he continued, “she will surely say to us, ‘go forward, go to the Lord, he will understand you.’ And she takes us with the hand of a mother to the embrace of the Father, to the Father of mercy.”
