Knots

Whew! We rolled out the canvas, found the center, pulled all edges taut, and began work on cutting and tracing templates. As suspected, this is labyrinth talk. By evening our bodies and minds were ready for a break. It will be a new day tomorrow.

Speaking of taking a break, the last time I had a massage my shoulders were full of knots. I was thankful for the person who could “undo” my knotty muscles. There are similarities between knots and the twists and turns of a labyrinth. If my mind is full of knots when entering the path, I usually experience more peace and clarity by the time I wind back out. It seems to me that Mary Untier of Knots also had an important role. I can be like this saint by listening to others with a willing ear; helping that person to experience rest and relief for their body and soul. The best massage ever!

One thought on “Knots”

  1. I was delighted to see this wonderful favorite image of Mary, the Untier of Knots. This image was part of an abbey of the arts retreat during Advent last year, the topic being the sacred feminine. So much meaning in this image of Mary, for each of us.
