June 28 is the feast day of St. Irenaeus. He was an early Christian theologian who argued against the gnostics in his extensive writings. He also wrote about the truth of apostolic teaching.
It is thought that the devotion to Our Lady Untier of Knots or Our Lady Undoer of Knots, can be traced back to this quote:
The knot of Eve’s disobedience was loosed by the obedience of Mary. For what the virgin Eve had bound fast through unbelief, this did the virgin Mary set free through faith.St. Irenaeus
