Untier Of Knots


“The knot of Eve’s disobedience wasMary OurLady Undoer of Knots untied by Mary’s obedience: what the virgin Eve bound through her disbelief, Mary loosened by her faith.”

                                       -St. Irenaeus


For Reflection:

Do I stand more in the footprints of Eve or the Blessed Mother? How do I show my obedience through faith even when it may be difficult? What is one example from my life that points to this?

The author never loses sight of the outcome of this war between Life and Death.  Throughout she is inspired by Mary,…The blessed one among women is Virgin, Bride, Spouse, and Mother; she is the Woman clothed with sun, who will crush the head of the serpent.  It is Mary who teaches that receptivity–total openness to God’s word–is the royal road to holiness.
