Mary Undoer of Knots is a Catholic devotion that, until fairly recently, was unknown outside of Germany, where it originated.
Then it spread to Argentina, and later to Brazil. How did this relatively obscure title of Mary, the Mother of God, somehow, jump to South America?
A man named Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now known as Pope Francis, had traveled to Germany. He returned to his native Argentina with a small picture of Our Blessed Mother peacefully and patiently untying a long white string of knots.
People in Argentina then became praying for Our Lady’s intercession, under the title of Mary, Undoer of Knots.
Now, people around the world are beginning to learn of this powerful devotion, which seems uniquely designed for the troubled and complicated times we’re living in. The fact that Pope Francis is reported to like this devotion has greatly aided its popularity.
At the same time, though, statues and images of Mary, Undoer of Knots are still relatively hard to come by. However, you will find prayer cards, and novena booklets, in Catholic bookstores and online.

I recently came across this really nice Mary Undoer of Knots plaque. It’s 6-inches high and designed to be hung on a wall. It would make a nice Christmas, birthday or anniversary gift, or even a First Holy Communion present.
