THE HANDS OF THE HANDMAID: God Rocking in The Cradle
Legion of Mary
Dedicated to Mary Untier of Knots
by Susan Fox
(The chief charism of
the Legion of Mary is evangelization, and her members regard themselves as the
mystical presence of Our Lady in the world. This was written during Peregrinatio
Pro Christo, an adventure for Christ, in which legionaries traveled from all
over the United States to do door-to-door evangelization for a full week in
My Lady's hands are sewing
beauty in embroidered light,
quickly moving to the rhythm
that the cricket chirps tonight.
A life is slowly mended,
a heart now turns to Christ;
another reaches as a child
for that Great Love so mild
that made us out of nothing,
good and perfect in His sight.
Through circumstances jumbled,
barking dogs and dreary rain,
Our Lady Untier of Knots,
Marian Image Beloved by Pope Francis
the evangelists stumbled, pressed on and
listened to a clear and simple refrain,
it was the living story, a thread
pulled from Our Lady’s brocade,
her perfect witness
to the resurrection of the dead:
those caught in awful bondage,
scruples, sin and slavery --
now see their knots unwound!
Their lives a perfect melody!
Rejoice, oh Blessed Lady!
Touch our weary brow.
Put your hands on all the knotted hearts of Anacortes.
