September 28

Saint of the day:

Our Lady Undoer of Knots

Mary, under the title of, Our Lady Undoer of Knots or Our Lady Untier of Knots, is a favorite of Pope Francis. The knots represent all the troubles and trials in our lives and our sins which separate us from God. “Eve, by her disobedience, tied the knot of disgrace for the human race; whereas Mary, by her obedience, undid it.” ~ Saint Irenaeus

Our Lady Undoer of Knots

We all have some “knots” in our lives… and Mary can untie them!

The devotion to Mary, Undoer of Knots has become more popular ever since Pope Francis encouraged the devotion in Argentina, and then spoke about it during his first year as pontiff.

The theology of the devotion actually goes back to the second century. Saint Irenaeus wrote that, “The knot of Eve’s disobedience was untied by the obedience of Mary; what the virgin Eve bound by her unbelief, the Virgin Mary loosened by her faith.” Mary’s faith unties the knot of sin! So we will pray that the Blessed Virgin Mary will intercede for us all, to untie the knots of sin in our lives – so that we may be purified and ever closer to God.
