[NEWS] Prayers blessed by pope to be used as housing insulation

 

From the Philadelphia Daily News

THE HANDWRITTEN prayers tied to the Mary, Undoer of Knots Grotto were offered up in English, in Spanish and in Vietnamese. They came in languages both obscure and universal.

More than 150,000 people from around the world and across Philadelphia wrote their prayers on white cloth ribbons that they tied in knots around the grotto, and when the ribbons ran out, the prayerful wrote their pleas on pieces of newspaper, shreds of white T-shirts and paper napkins.

"Please heal Monica."

"Please help me find my way."

"Heal his cancer."
