Mary Untier of Knots with Pope Francis Framed Prayer
The image you see here is of the original “Mary, Undoer of Knots,” a once obscure, 300 year-old painting that has become one of the fastest growing Marian devotions in the world today. Known in her German homeland as “Maria Knotenlöserin,” this beautiful sacred image by Catholic master painter Johann Schmidtner was inspired by a real German family’s story of marital disunity, struggle, intercession, and powerful reconciliation. Discovered and then expanded into a Marian devotion in the 1980’s by then-Father Jorge Mario Bergoglio, “Mary, Undoer of Knots” is a favorite devotion of Pope Francis himself, and continues to spread throughout the world due to his influence. Our image of the original “Mary, Undoer of Knots” has undergone professional digital restoration to remove the effects of 300 years of aging and candle-smoke.
The prayer reads:
Through your grace, your intercession,
and your example, deliver us from all evil,
Our Lady, and untie the knots that
prevent us from being united with God,
so that we, free from sin and error,
may find Him in all things,
may have our hearts placed in Him,
and may serve Him always in our brothers and sisters. Amen.
