“Mary, the Virgin, is found to be obedient, saying: ‘Behold, O Lord, your handmaid. Be it done to me according to your word.’ Eve, however, was disobedient; and when yet a virgin, she did not obey. … Having become disobedient, (Eve) was made the cause of death for herself and for the whole human race; so also Mary, betrothed to a man but nevertheless still a virgin, being obedient, was made the cause of salvation for herself and for the whole human race. … Thus, the knot of Eve’s disobedience was loosed by the obedience of Mary. What the virgin Eve had bound in unbelief, the Virgin Mary loosed through faith.”
The Virgin Mary as the “New Eve” becomes the “Mother of the Living”, those who give testimony to Jesus (Revelation 12:17). This devotion of Our Lady untying knots points to her role as Queen of Heaven, she prays and intercedes before the King of kings on behalf of the people of God. Mary’s faith unties the knot of sin!
