"Eve, by her disobedience, tied the knot of disgrace for the human race; whereas Mary, by her obedience, undid it." Inspired by these words of St. Irenaeus, a German artist painted "Mary, Undoer of Knots" in 1700. Pope Francis saw the image while in Germany and shared it with the world. Mary, Undoer of Knots resonates deeply with millions who suffer from the many problems, or "knots," of life.
