one cannot talk about the church if mary the mother of the lord is not present with his brothers - pope john paul ii

“One cannot talk about the Church if Mary, the Mother of the Lord, is not present with His brothers. Only Mary could make one heart and one mind of Jesus’ Apostles, as though Christ wanted to show us that He entrusted to His Mother’s maternal care the mission of making the Church a single family. Yes, in Mary we have the bond of communion of all of us who, through faith and Baptism, are disciples and brothers of Jesus..”
