We all have problems, some bigger than others, and often we are in desperate need of a solution.

St. John of Matha was in a similar situation and instead of giving up, he turned to the Virgin Mary. Thousands of Christians were being captured and turned into slaves, so St. John asked the Blessed Mother to intercede and provide money for their ransom.

She pulled through and St. John was able to free many Christian slaves. In thanksgiving, he honored Mary as “Our Lady of Good Remedy.”

If anyone knows how to secure a positive remedy to a difficult situation, it is the Blessed Mother.

Here is a special novena of Our Lady of Good Remedy that asks her to “Help me with thy prayers and intercession to find a remedy for my problems and needs.”
