It is with extreme joy that we bring to you the
real history of Mary Undoer of Knots.
How this devotion
To show us the mission granted to the Virgin Mary
by Her Son, an unknown artist painted Mary Undoer
of Knots with great grace. Since 1700, his painting
has been venerated in the Church of St. Peter
in Perlack, Germany. It was originally inspired
by a meditation of Saint Irenaeus (Bishop of Lyon
and martyred in 202) based on the parallel made
by Saint Paul between Adam and Christ. Saint Irenaeus,
in turn, made a comparison between Eve and Mary,
by her disobedience, tied the knot of disgrace
for the human race; whereas Mary, by her obedience,
are these knots?
the problems and struggles we face for which
we do not see any solution.
Knots of discord in your family, lack of
understanding between parents and children,
disrespect, violence, the knots of deep
hurts between husband and wife, the absence
of peace and joy at home. They are also
the knots of anguish and despair of separated
couples, the dissolution of the family,
the knots of a drug addict son or daughter,
sick or separated from home or God, knots
of alcoholism, the practice of abortion,
depression, unemployment, fear, solitude…Ah,
the knots of our life! How they suffocate
the soul, beat us down and betray the heart’s
joy and separate us from God.

We are living
in difficult times where the problems, the knots,
the temptations, the lack of peace and the evils
are all around us. Like a roaring lion your
adversary, the devil, prowls around, looking
for someone to devour.
(1 Peter 5,8)
For that reason, Mary Who undoes the knots,
Who was chosen by God to crush the evil with
Her feet, comes to us to reveal Herself. She
comes to provide jobs, good health, to reconcile
families, because She wants to undo the knots
of our sins which dominate our lives, so that
- as sons of the King - we can receive the promises
reserved for us from eternity. She comes with
promises of victory, peace, blessings and reconciliation.

our knots – filled with happiness, we can
be a testimony of the Divine Power in this world,
like pieces of God’s heart or small bottles
of perfume exhaling mercy and love to our neighbor.
Like ambassador of Jesus Christ and the Virgin
of the fair love, we can rescue those who cry
without any consolation, those who are lonely,
tied with knots, who have no God, no Father nor
Mother of the

Knots is presented. Above all, She comes as the

who has compassion for us and hurries to rescue
us, praying for each one of us to Her beloved
Is it possible that the Lord does not answer Her?
May Mary Undoer of Knots bless you today and forever.
