[NEWS] Knotty Exhibit Planned for Pope Symbolizes Life's Challenges

 

From The Oregonian

A knotty exhibit being created for Pope Francis' upcoming trip to Philadelphia will honor the pontiff's teachings by letting visitors acknowledge the challenges in their daily lives.

The installation, to be built in the shape of a grotto next to the city's Roman Catholic cathedral, is inspired by a painting called "Mary, Undoer of Knots" that holds special meaning for the pope.

People will be invited to write down their own problems on provided material, most likely ribbon, and tie them to the grotto, leaving them behind. They'll also be encouraged to help others by loosening and removing a knot already in place.
