In 1700, artist Johann Melchior Georg Schmittdner painted the image of Mary Undoer of Knots. The original inspiration for this image of Mary was a meditation of Saint Irenaeus who said, “Eve, by her disobedience, tied the knot of disgrace for the human race; whereas Mary, by her obedience, undid it.”
And so we bring the "knots" of our lives to Mary our Mother, confident that she intercedes for us to her Son with love and care. What "knots" are in your life? Bring them to Mary and also entrust the Carmel community to keep your prayers in our prayers as well!
