Jesusí way of addressing God as Father is rooted in His own intimate relationship to God. Now whatever else we say about God, we cannot say that He is Jesusí mother, for Jesusí mother is not God but Mary. Jesusí mother was a creature; His Father, the Creator. "Father" and "Mother" are not, then, interchangeable terms for God in relation to Jesus. Nor can they be for us, if Catholicismís doctrine that Mary is the "Mother of Christians" is correct.
