OUR GUEST SPEAKER: Marianna Garcia


Marianna Garcia is a gifted speaker, educator, and advocate for individuals, families, and children- especially those whose lives have been impacted by the chaos of addiction. Marianna’s recovery journey through a 12-step program helped lay a foundation for her to discover a faith that would grow over time.

She met Jesus in a personal way through a dramatic encounter with His Mother and through the ministry of Magnificat. It was then that Marianna came to believe in the love the Lord had for her and the call He placed on her life. She was baptized and received into the Catholic Church the following Easter and her life has never been the same.

Marianna is a single Mom to a beautiful 7-year-old daughter who was also recently diagnosed with a serious rare disease. Through all these challenges, Marianna has grown deeper in her faith. She shares a message of hope and deliverance for all who seek to live a faith-filled life in the midst of trials.

HISTORY of Mary Undoer of Knots Chapter

Magnificat Suffolk County- Our Lady Undoer of Knots, began with a dream over 25 years ago and became an official Chapter in 2016. Over the years, through attending the Nassau County Magnificat events and some of the conferences in New Orleans and Washington, DC, a Suffolk County Chapter finally came together with a group of faith filled women with complimentary gifts and zeal for the Holy Spirit. Our Chapter was formed to officially move us into the phase of formation. During this time, we gathered women to pray at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Island in Manorville, NY, run by the Montfort Fathers. We called ourselves, “Heart and Hands”, praying to serve God’s women with Mary’s heart and Martha’s hands. (cf. Luke 10:38-42) We hosted breakfasts as a prayer group and enjoyed gathering together in prayer and praise. In the summer of 2016, one of our members and her daughter, made a cross country trip from New York to California- visiting churches, Holy Doors of Mercy, and praying the rosary and the Divine Mercy chaplet daily for our church, our nation, and especially for our Magnificat Chapter. On that pilgrimage a beautiful icon was found of the Visitation in a Byzantine Church in Illinois. When I contacted the artist, she told me that she had a hand-painted icon of the Visitation that was just being released from a museum. She was happy to share it with us. Our core team took the icon as a sign from Our Blessed Mother that soon our chapter would be official! We pray that you will consider becoming involved in Magnificat to partner with us in this ministry. May our souls unite with the prayer of Mary’s heart as we sing; “My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior! For He who is mighty has done great things and HOLY IS HIS NAME!” (Luke 1:46,49).
