He said, the Church should embrace the maternal instincts of a mother, with its faithful. POPE FRANCIS"Our Lady and our Mother Church know how to care for their children and give comfort. Thinking of the Church without this maternal factor, is like thinking of a rigid association. An association without human warmth, orphan.” The Pope then added that its within the Church and through this maternal element, that humility, understanding and forgiveness give rise.
