The human soul "will never be lost if it continues to be close to the two great women who accompany us in life: Mary and the Church," Pope Francis said on September 15, 2014, in memory of Our Lady of Sorrows.

Jesus "came into the world to learn to be a man and, being man, to walk with men. He came to the world in obedience and he obeyed… but… this obedience was learned through suffering.” Likewise Mary, "the mother, the New Eve, follows this path of her son: she learned, she suffered and she obeyed” making her a mother for Christians.

Far from being orphans, the baptized also have the Church as their mother, " when she follows the same path of Jesus and Mary: the path of obedience, the path of suffering, and when her approach is to constantly learn the way of the Lord.” Just as Mary is "the steadfast Mother… who gives us certainty," so the Church "is steadfast when she adores Jesus Christ and she guides us, teaches us, shelters us, helps us on this path of obedience, of suffering, of learning this wisdom of God.”

The Pope spoke of a third feminine figure: "According to monk and abbot, Isaac of Stella, our soul is also female and likewise resembles Mary and the Church… Our little soul will never be lost if it too continues to be a woman close to those two great women who accompany us in life: Mary and the Church.”
