God Is Enough: 3-Minute Retreat
God Is Enough

Pope Francis on Mercy

But we know one thing: nothing is impossible for God’s mercy! Even the most tangled knots are loosened by his grace. And Mary, whose “yes” opened the door for God to undo the knot of the ancient disobedience, is the Mother who patiently and lovingly brings us to God, so that he can untangle the knots of our soul by his fatherly mercy. We all have some of these knots, and we can ask in our heart of hearts: what are the knots in my life? “Father, my knots cannot be undone!” It is a mistake to say anything of the sort! All the knots of our heart, every knot of our conscience, can be undone. Do I ask Mary to help me trust in God’s mercy, to undo those knots, to change? She, as a woman of faith, will surely tell you, “Get up, go to the Lord: he understands you.” And she leads us by the hand as a mother, our Mother, to the embrace of our Father, the Father of mercies.
