You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not overcome it. Mt 16:18
Peter was entrusted with the Church, the Mother of human beings, but John was entrusted with Mary, the Mother of God. John loved her like his own mother and was loved by her as her own son. St Peter Damien
O Mary, you are the Mother of the Church as well as the Mother of God. Keep me close to you so that I may be a true child of God and a faithful member of His Holy Church.
~~ From the book Mary, Day by Day
