From a now-deleted website:

Pope Francis on Mary:

“She is a true mother who gives us life in Christ, and in the communion of the Holy Spirit, brings us into a common life with our brothers and sisters.”

“The model of motherhood for the Church is the Blessed Virgin Mary, who in the fullness of time conceived through the Holy Spirit and gave birth to the Son of God,”…. “Her motherhood continues through the Church, who brings forth sons and daughters through baptism, whom she nourishes through the word of God.”

The Protestant Response:

“Francis is the worst of frauds, for he seeks to pawn off his church as the church, when it is an assembly that teaches that men must believe in man-made doctrines in order to be saved, trust in creatures to be saved, and look her priesthood in order to be saved. It is antichrist at its core.”
