VATICAN CITY (CNS) — Mary, the mother of God, has been present during the COVID-19 pandemic, and she was by the side of all those who died alone, Pope Francis said.

“If someone is alone and abandoned, she is the mother and she is there nearby just as she was next to her son when everyone else abandoned him,” the pope said March 24 during his weekly general audience.

“Mary was and is present in these days of the pandemic, near the people who, unfortunately, concluded their earthly journey in isolation, without the comfort of or the closeness of their loved ones,” he said.

“Mary is always there, near us, with her maternal tenderness,” the pope said.

During the audience, which was livestreamed from the library of the Apostolic Palace, Pope Francis continued his series of talks about prayer by looking at prayer in communion with Mary and her role in people’s lives.

As he has underlined often, the pope reiterated that Mary is not a “co-redemptrix.” For decades, some Catholics have been petitioning the popes to recognize Mary as co-redemptrix to highlight the essential role she played in redemption.

In his audience talk, Pope Francis said, Christ is the one and only redeemer, and “there is no other name by which we can be saved.”

Christ is also the supreme mediator, he added, the “bridge that we cross to turn to the father.”

Jesus entrusted Mary to humanity as a mother, “not as a goddess, not as co-redemptrix,” he said, adding that love motivated some people to call her “co-redemptrix,” but love often leads people to “exaggerate.”

Mary “occupies a privileged place in the lives of Christians, and therefore, in their prayer as well, because she is the mother of Jesus,” he said.

However, she is “always in relation to her son and in connection with him,” he said. Jesus is the center, and “Mary is completely directed toward him.”

“This is the role Mary fulfilled throughout her entire earthly life and which she retains forever: to be the humble handmaid of the Lord, nothing more,” he said.

The feast of the Annunciation March 25 reminds people that Mary said, “yes,” and promptly welcomed the angel’s invitation.

Mary “also responds to our supplications, she hears our voices,” the pope said.

Like every good mother, “Mary defends us from danger, she is concerned about us even when we are concentrated on our own things and lose a sense of the way, and when we put not only our health in danger, but also our salvation,” he said.

“Mary is there, praying for us, praying for those who do not pray, praying with us. And why? Because she is our mother,” he said

None of this stuff (or extremely little of this, like Mary being present at Jesus crucifixion) is present in the bible whatsoever, neither are these instructions.

We are instructed to pray to the Father, directly and in Jesus name, period. We are told it's the Lord that protects and heals us, not Mary, we are told that it is the Holy Spirit that guides, helps, comforts, reminds us about (not Mary) Jesus Christ and His instructions.

We do not read these extra biblical items such as Mary responding to our supplications. Although he does say that Jesus is the way to salvation it seems that he puts Mary in the position of Holy Spirit and in effect gives her a prestige that sure seems like she's more than a believer in Christ that needed her sins forgiven as well.

The bible tells us that the Sarah representing heavenly (not earthly, nor Rome) Jerusalem of where a Christian's citizenship lay, is our mother, not Mary.

But the other woman, Sarah, represents the heavenly Jerusalem. She is the free woman, and she is our mother.

Gal 4:26

Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor!
The Lord rescues them when they are in trouble.
The Lord protects them
and keeps them alive.
He gives them prosperity in the land
and rescues them from their enemies.
The Lord nurses them when they are sick
and restores them to health.
Psalm 41:1-3

The Lord protects the foreigners among us.
He cares for the orphans and widows,
but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.
Psalm 146:9

You who love the Lord, hate evil!
He protects the lives of his godly people
and rescues them from the power of the wicked.
Light shines on the godly,
and joy on those whose hearts are right.
Psalm 97:10-11

But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.
Matt 6:6

You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!
John 14:13-14

For healing we are told to:

Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven. James 5:14-15

Most of the New Testament is completely about Jesus Christ, period. We might read about Mary as mother of Christ and then as being present with the Apostles, worshipping Jesus with them (Acts 1) but she does not play a major role or mention for hardly the rest of the New Testament.....not even in Revelation.
Right off the bat, you can see the biblical error. Mary was NOT the "mother of God". God has no "mother" He is and ALWAYS was. Mary was the mother of the mortal human body of Jesus. That body was recomposed in resurrection as will be that of ALL humans--"some to everlasting life" (in heaven) and "others to everlasting shame" in the Lake of Fire. The divinity of Jesus the Messiah, was established through the Holy Spirit.
