It is because he (God) was foolish by not knowing his Mother, that he said: "I am God, and apart from me there is no one". The Mother hearing him talking like that, exclaimed "Don't lie, Jaldabaoth..."
Valentinus in E.Pagels "The Gnostic Gospels"

"The biblical "Sophia" is the Mother of the Universe, the highest deity in Heaven, "equal to God". In the Russian Orthodox Ritus She is still considered to be the All-Embracing One, the personification of the "Eternal-Feminine"              

"One of the most popular tales in Russia is "The Visit of the Mother of God to Hell". This "proof" of Her limitless compassion (to visit the victims of eternal punishment) is directly linked with the archaic myth of Inanna
going to the Underworld searching for Her Lover"

"The title "Mother of God" (Theotokos) for the Madonna was exacted from by the people (431, Efese), who wanted to restore the status of the Original Great Mother. Hence,  the concept of the "Mother of God" has
to be taken literally"

"Cybele, the Great Mother is being considered by Emperor Julian as the Ultimate, giving birth to the Gods, which in their turn
are begetting the visible world"
                         J.Bidez "La Vie de l'Empereur Julien"                 

"Jean Gerson, chancellor of the University of Paris (around 1400) denounced images of the Madonna, symbolizing the entire
Trinity as being the fruit of Her Lap"
                                  L. Huizinga "Herfsttij der Middeleeuwen"

"The Black Madonna's are in direct lineage with the Great Mother: the African Black Mother, Kali, Cybele, Isis and Artemis. F.e. in 679 the Merovingian King Dagobert II established the cult to "the one which
today receives the name of Our Lady and who is our Eternal Isis"

"The Holy Grail as Vessel of Abundance is symbolizing nothing
but the Cosmic Womb"

"Darkness precedes the Light"
Inscription in the altar of Salerno Cathedral

God didn't create the world out of nothingness, but rather Nothingness
is giving birth to both "God" and the world. The Eternal Feminine
is the Ground of Existence.

"The Madonna as "Queen of Heaven" - as expressed in countless sanctuaries, patronesses, churches, religious orders and festivals - has always played a dominant role in popular devotion. Christ
really comes second"

"Consciously or unconsciously, Marian theology is moving toward a significant reinterpretation of the original Christian concept of
the Godhead as consisting of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit"
                                     S. Benko "The Virgin Goddess"

This virtual Mother Church project is a gift to all those who were
waiting for a Mother-oriented Christian religion. It is NOT an organization. Its main purpose is to enlighten, inspire and support.
