With the hope of saving his marriage, a young man sought advice from a Jesuit priest. During their talks, they would pray together, asking Mary's intercession. As they did so, the priest would untie the knots in the husband's wedding ribbon. Years after the man and his wife had reconciled, their grandson commissioned a painting --Mary Untier of Knots by Johann Schmidtner, which came to symbolize this unique devotion to Our Lady.
Almost three centuries later, another young Jesuit priest, Jorge Bergoglio (now Pope Francis), while studying in Germany, came across a painting that depicts Mary patiently undoing knots in a long cord. He took a copy of the painting to Argentina and began to encourage the devotion. Many more people have found consolation and encouragement through Our Lady Undoer of Knots’ powerful intercession.
