St. Augustine holds that the motherhood of the Virgin Mary is central to the Christian faith. If Jesus had no mother, then he would not be a real man. If Jesus was not a real man, we are still dead.
If you are interested in more quotes on Virgin Mary, you can find them in Mary and the Fathers of the Church on Amazon in both Kindle and paperback formats.
