Actually no, I do not. You said it yourself...GOING THROUGH HIS MOTHER. Why would a prayer going through a human in heaven be any more effective than say a prayer going through the holy spirit that lives inside of you?

so you have never had anyone pray for you?????

That is not what the Rosary, at it's core, is though. Look at it like this. While I am praying i never stop and say Dear holy friend who lives down the street please talk to GOD for me and let him know I need his help. Get it now?

In my opinion it is all about how you view the Rosary, Mary, and prayer. All I am saying is that prayer is more than just "let me recite some words and it will magically change my life." It is not about words. These things are human constructs that our minds have developed. The act of prayer is you Joining in the struggle or burden or joy of the person you are praying for and or with.

My comfort is in the fact that knowing I share in the same spirit as mary, and paul, and peter, not in the fact that through these people I have another person to pray to, Does that make sense?

I am not condemning people that pray the Rosary. I just feel that the people that believe in a human being and considering her the HOLY MOTHER OF GOD is a bit much.

Just for some clarification, When you (not necessarily directed at the person I quoted but anyone who prays the Rosary) pray the rosary do you always end with this prayer?

"HAIL, HOLY QUEEN, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!"

Because this is a prayer TO mary not WITH mary. you are not joining in prayer with her you are placing her between you and Jesus. Just read the words.

Just check your own spirit and make sure that when and if you pray the rosary you are not praying to mary but you are praying to Jesus. That's all. I will never pray it though, no need.

How can you talk so much about it without ever having done it? Trust me, there is nothing to be afraid of, our mother loves us!

Because, my friend, I have spent close to 7 years constantly praying, fighting (winning and losing), meditating, and reading about things like this. It is not as if I am oblivious to the doings of the Catholic church. When you view the rosary you see a sacred and holy prayer that allows you to communicate with mary that then takes your prayers to Jesus.

I see an Idle that makes light of what Christ has done for me. Now I am not saying that everyone that prays the rosary is worshiping an idol and going to hell. It is just that I know this world is screwed up and the closer I am to God the better. Therefore placing a human in-between me and Jesus adds an unnecessary complication, and these complications only give satan a foothold to lead us astray. Be careful who your spirit prays TO is all I am saying.

By the way Mary is not my mother. The spirit of Jesus that lives inside of me is entirely from God. My mother is the person that bore my flesh.
