Our Lady Undoer of Knots, Catholic Medal Pendant
Silver pewter medal of Our Lady Mary, Undoer of Knots. This medal is also known as Mary, Untier of Knots. On the back are the words Pray For Us.
To show us the mission granted to the Virgin Mary by Her Son, an artist Johann Melchior Georg Schmittdner painted Mary Undoer of Knots with great grace. Since 1700, his painting has been venerated in the Church of St. Peter in Perlack, Augsburg, Germany. It was originally inspired by a meditation of St Irenaeus who made a comparison between Eve and Mary, saying: “Eve, by her disobedience, tied the knot of disgrace for the human race; whereas Mary, by her obedience, undid it”.
While a student in the 1980s, Cardinal Bergoglio, (now Pope Francis), visited the church of St. Peter in Perlach. He was so deeply touched by this ancient devotion, that he brought its history back to Argentina from where awareness of it grew and spread again.
