As there is a Munus or Office of the Papacy beginning with Peter, is there an Office of Children of Mary, "the Woman," beginning with St. John the Apostle?

The Book of Revelation speak of "A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun... She gave birth to a son" - The Catholic Monitor
Catholic author Mary Fabyan Windeatt in her 1950 book "Saint Louis De Montfort" showed why our life may sometimes be empty without serving Jesus Christ through "the woman." He said on the cross to St. John, the beloved disciple, "Behold your mother" and to his mother, "the women," standing below the cross "Behold your son."
Later, He said to St. Peter after the feed my lambs discourse in the book of St. John the Apostle:
“'If I want him to remain until I return, what is that to you? You follow Me!' Because of this, the rumor spread among the brothers that this disciple would not die. However, Jesus did not say that he would not die, but only, 'If I want him to remain until I return, what is that to you?'" [https://biblehub.com/john/21-22.htm]
What could this mean?
It means that as with Peter and the munus or office of the papacy, there would be an office until Jesus returns on Judgement Day for certain followers of His who will "son[s]" and children of his mother, "the women," beginning with St. John the Apostle.
The Book of Revelation speaks of "A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun... She gave birth to a son... those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus":
12 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. 5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.”[a] And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
7 Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
13 When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 14 The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach. 15 Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. 16 But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.

For those who Jesus calls to the office of being the children of Mary, they will not be fulfilled or happy unless they serve Jesus through Mary. Windeatt wrote in her book how St. Louis De Montfort was such a son or child of Mary:
"A lump came into Father Grignion's [St. Louis De Montfort's] throat. Souls of the poor and unwanted! What a privilege to be their friend!"
"He announced that in the morning he was going to beg... [for] the urgent needs of the poorhouse... 'I'm a slave! The slave of Jesus, in Mary! And right now, begging for others is the work I've been given to do.'"
"Why shouldn't his co-workers [in the poorhouse] know the the truth about him? That years ago, while still only a student in the Seminary of saint Sulpice in Paris, he had offered himself, body and soul, to the Blessed Virgin for her to do with as she would? That he had kept back nothing -- not even the satisfactory merit of his prayers and good works -- so that she herself might apply these to whatever needy souls she wished to help?" ("Saint Louis De Montfort," Pages 7-9)
Pray an Our Father now for reparation for the sins committed because of Francis's Amoris Laetitia.
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He wants you to do now and next. In this silence remember God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost - Three Divine Persons yet One God, has an ordered universe where you can know truth and falsehood as well as never forget that He wants you to have eternal happiness with Him as his son or daughter by grace. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet.
- Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:
"[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See."
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)
Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said "the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church."

- LifeSiteNews, "Confusion explodes as Pope Francis throws magisterial weight behind communion for adulterers," December 4, 2017:
The AAS guidelines explicitly allows "sexually active adulterous couples facing 'complex circumstances' to 'access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'"
- On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:
"The AAS statement... establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense."
- On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:
"Francis' heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents."
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.
