Website of the Sanctuary

Daily from 8.00 to 18.00

St. Peter am Perlach

Mary, Untier of Knots or Mary Undoer of Knots is the name of both a Marian devotion and a Baroque painting (German: Wallfahrtsbild or Gnadenbild) which represents that devotion.

The painting by Johann Georg Melchior Schmidtner, of around 1700. Pope Francis saw the image while in Germany as a student and promoted her veneration in Latin AmericaSee Top 15 Catholic shrines around the world.

St. Peter is a gem in more ways than one and is in the heart of the city of Augsburg. The entrance to the church is somewhat hidden in the “Fish Market” opposite the magnificent Town Hall on the south side of the mighty Perlach Tower, which is a landmark of Augsburg and at the same time the tower of St. Peter. See also in Augsburg the Cathedral of the Virgin Mary.

One of the oldest churches in the city of Augsburg, which dates back at least to the 11th century. Clearly recognisable three ships of a Romanesque hall church clearly attests to old age. Noteworthy is primarily a small terracotta figure showing Jesus Christ as “Pantokrator” blessing the people. It was made around 1200 and can be found in the entrance area. See other Catholic shrines in Germany.

Mary Undoer of Knots

In 1700 the Augsburg patrician Hieronymus Ambrosius Langenmantel donated the famous painting of Mary Undoer of Knots. Mary, who solves the knots on a long cord, also crushes the serpent’s head at her feet. The trampling of the serpent recalls us that Mary is excluded from the outset and by special grace from original sin. She presents itself as a “Immaculata conception” (Immaculate Mary).

As described in the Revelation of John, Mary stands before us clothed with the sun as Apocalyptic woman, the moon under her feet and a crown of 12 stars on her head. The dove is a reference to Mary as the Bride of the Holy Spirit. The painting is attributed to painter Johann Georg Melchior Schmidtner (1625 to 1707).

What do Knots represent?

They are the problems and struggles we face for which we do not see any solution.

They are also the knots of anguish and despair of separated couples, the dissolution of the family, the knots of a drug addict son or daughter, sick or separated from home or God, knots of alcoholism, the practice of abortion, depression, unemployment, fear, solitude…Ah, the knots of our life! How they suffocate the soul, beat us down and betray the heart’s joy and separate us from God.

Meditation for Day 1 – Our Lady Undoer of Knots

Dearest Holy Mother, Most Holy Mary, you undo the knots that suffocate your children, extend your merciful hands to me. I entrust to You today this knot….and all the negative consequences that it provokes in my life. I give you this knot that torments me and makes me unhappy and so impedes me from uniting myself to You and Your Son Jesus, my Savior.

I run to You, Mary, Undoer of Knots because I trust you and I know that you never despise a sinning child who comes to ask you for help. I believe that you can undo this knot because Jesus grants you everything. I believe that you want to undo this knot because you are my Mother. I believe that You will do this because you love me with eternal love.

Thank you, Dear Mother. Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me. The one who seeks grace, finds it in Mary’s hands.

You know very well how desperate I am, my pain and how I am bound by these knots.
Mary, Mother to whom God entrusted the undoing of the knots in the lives of His children, I entrust into your hands the ribbon of my life.
No one, not even the evil one himself, can take it away from your precious care. In your hands there is no knot that cannot be undone.

Mary, Beloved Mother, channel of all grace, I return to You today my heart, recognizing that I am a sinner in need of your help.

Our Lady Undoer of Knots Mother, Undoer of Knots, generous and compassionate, I come to You today to once again entrust this knot…in my life to you and to ask the divine wisdom to undo, under the light of the Holy Spirit, this snarl of problems.

Take away from me the bitterness, anger and hatred which this knot has caused me. Give me, o dearest Mother, some of the sweetness and wisdom that is all silently reflected in your heart. And just as you were present at Pentecost, ask Jesus to send me a new presence of the Holy Spirit at this moment in my life. Holy Spirit, come upon me!

What do Knots represent?

They are the problems and struggles we face for which we do not see any solution.

Knots of discord in your family, lack of understanding between parents and children, disrespect, violence, the knots of deep hurts between husband and wife, the absence of peace and joy at home. They are also the knots of anguish and despair of separated couples, the dissolution of the family, the knots of a drug addict son or daughter, sick or separated from home or God, knots of alcoholism, the practice of abortion, depression, unemployment, fear, solitude…Ah, the knots of our life! How they suffocate the soul, beat us down and betray the heart’s joy and separate us from God.
