It is a beautiful Marian invocation, in which the faithful raise their prayers to the Virgin Mary, present in the Virgin Untied, because she helps her children to solve difficulties and also eliminates all the ties that prevent men from following the path of God. without deviating.

But where did the belief in this Marian deity come from, legend has it that a young German nobleman had problems in his relationship with his beloved wife, so with faith he began to pray to the image of the Virgin Mary to intercede and achieve reestablish the relationship of love and respect that they had had.

Representation of the Virgin
We can recognize the representation of the Virgin Untied Knots through a beautiful painting where the Virgin is depicted in detail on which the presence of the holy spirit is found, represented as a dove. The virgin is surrounded by angels, who accompany and serve her, one of them extends his hand with the ribbon full of knots and the miracle is observed when another of the angels picks up the ribbon without knots, which passes through the hands of the virgin.
The Untied Virgin is the Immaculate Virgin of the Conception, recognized by the presence of the moon. Also in the representation the serpent is observed as the one that encourages men to sin and they are accompanied by an angel through the darkness. But the Virgin Undoing the Knots not only removes obstacles from the path but also eliminates the cause of all of them as she passes.
This affirmation is represented in the painting by the virgin in which one of her bare feet is on the head of the serpent, the problems that are represented in each knot that is seen in the tape, are untied when passing through her blessed hands, which is the interpretation that she ends the problems. By the year 1700 the image was known as Maria als Knotenlöserin in Germany.

Negotiations were made to request the endorsement to carry out the painting with Cardinal Antonio Quarracino, who was the archbishop of the city of Buenos Aires, who accepted and approved the request. The image found its special place in the Argentine parish and is visited and venerated. The number of faithful who attend to venerate the Virgin Desatanudos, on many occasions exceeds the capacity of the church where the image is painted.
Due to the fact that the number of faithful grows over the years, at this moment the possibility of consecrating a new special temple to carry out the veneration in a larger place is being analyzed.

That student is today one of the faithful of that Marian dedication and also came to develop an excellent priestly career, becoming Pope, he is Pope Francis, whose first name is Jorge Bergoglio, the student who brought the image of the Virgin to Argentina.
For the Catholic Church, the virgin knot-breaker is also recognized as “Mother of good advice” and based on the original request that generated her Marian representation, she is called “Patron of marriages and conflicts in the lives of people and peoples”.
