When I saw the knotted grotto through IG posts and news broadcasts, I knew I had to see it in person. what I didn't know was how overwhelmed I would feel once inside.
On Friday, October 2nd, just under a week after the Pope's arrival, my sister & I decided to visit The Knotted Grotto. Despite the nor'easter hitting the area, I was determined to get a glimpse before it was set to be dismantled a few days later. The ink on the cloth had begun to run from the precipitation & many were hard to read but it didn't make them any less special.
I can't put it into words but the energy was it doesn't matter what god you believe in or if you don't believe in one at all, we're all figuring how to get through this thing together. everyone has something they wish for & pray for. Everyone has things they wish they could change.
Although the installation has been taken down, the nearly 250,000 knots will not go to waste. They will be used to insulate a new project home facility expected in 2016.
