Mary Undoer of Knots
“Eve, by her disobedience, tied the knot of disgrace for the human race; whereas Mary, by her obedience, undid it”. -Saint Irenaeus
The first time I heard of this image and devotion to Mary was when I happened to come across a lovely painting of her on Etsy. Here is the link to that painting if you would like to see it: http://www.etsy.com/listing/54445798/our-lady-undoer-of-knots
I am still getting to know about the image and devotion myself so here is a good link to more information about her: /http://kbpipes.wordpress.com/2010/09/11/mary-undoer-of-knots/ You will also find the novena to her at this web site.
I think this would be a nice prayer card to make in the future.Oh, and here is a prayer I found to her:
PRAYER TO THE VIRGIN MARY AS UNTIER OF KNOTSHoly Mary, full of the presence of God during your life you accepted with great humility the Holy Will of the Father and the legacy of your Son Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Evil never dared to entangle you with its confusion. Since then you have interceded for all of our difficulties. With all simplicity and patience you have given us example on how to untangle the knots in our complicated lives. By being our Mother forever, you arrange and make clear the path that unites us to Our Lord. Holy Mary, Mother of God and ours, with your maternal heart untie the knots that upset our lives. We ask you to receive in your hands ( mention who or prayer request) and deliver us from the chains and confusions that have us restrained. Blessed Virgin Mary, through your grace, your intercession and by your example, deliver us from evil and untie the knots that keep us from uniting with God, so that once free of every confusion and error, we may find Him in all things, have Him in our hearts and serve him always in our brothers and sisters. Mother of Good Counsel pray for us . Amen
