Re: Why do Catholics worship Mary?
Parading down streets holding up statues of 'mary'
Kneeling before statues of 'mary'
Saying 'mary' brings salvation
Lighting candles to mary
Praying to mary


That's not revering....
That's worship

I used to be Catholic until I realised they had us worshiping clay images. And, also telling us that Mary was a mediator, we have only one mediator, Christ.

You are correct!

1 Timothy 2:5 King James Bible
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Jesus Christ is the only way to Salvation.
1 Corinthians 1611 AV KJ Bible
Chapter 15
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

Matthew 2:11 1611 King James Bible
¶ And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

In the above verse they worshipped baby Jesus not Mary.
 Quoting: countryleftypenn


Just to clarify, they prostrated (prosekynesan) before him, they didn't give him the divine worship/service (latreuo) rendered God alone.

Re: Why do Catholics worship Mary?
Catholics don't worship Mary, they have a tremendous amount of admiration and RESPECT for her in being the mother of Jesus.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 36960387


What about statues?
 Quoting: countryleftypenn


Statues are a visual aid only , they are NOT worshiped ,they only bring to mind a particular saint when one is asking the saint to intercede in our behalf with God. As I see it the saints have graduated and we who are alive are students only.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74460690


No, that's the rationale used at the second Council of Nicea 787 AD to rationalize and legalize idol worship (icon "veneration"). You don't venerate, go on pilgrimage and attribute miracles to mere visual aids.

So you want a miracle you go through Mary
 Quoting: Linny Warren


why can’t you just go to the source. The Bible is clear in that it says not to worship or idolize anything. Can anyone show me where it says you must pray to anyone other then God if you want a miracle or just want to get your mental mail delivered?

Godhead means godhood, as in ~divine quality, not some kind of triune, pagan God-office. The suffix -head (or -hede) is just the archaic, Middle English form of -hood. Maybe it's you that should study the word rather.

So, why do you have three Gods and not the one between Whom and mankind Jesus mediates? Why do you instead worship the trinity abomination your mother church invented and commanded you to worship?

What difference does it make if they worship a man or a woman or a baby. it's all equally wrong, like idol worship. God is not a human being and never was.

Re: Why do Catholics worship Mary?
II too was Catholic and now leaving. I became widowed and moved out rural to pray as a hermit, day and night. I ordered every book of prayer and dropped the Catholic Church because of this. I began to see all the “indulgences” and graces offered if I prayed such and such all sins would be forgiven. I also noticed all prayers were to Mary and very few to Christ. They seemed to offer every route to forgive sins and prayer except Christ and his blood alone.

I officially quit the Catholic Church just by reading one book of prayers..

It is not that we worship Mary. We worship God, Mary, Jesus, all the angels and saints. It is just that if you compare the catholic church to the born again Christian church, the latter, does not give too much attention on Mary, the angels and saints. They are more focused on the bible teachings.

Re: Why do Catholics worship Mary?
Why do people worship anyone other than the Creator is because many of us believe that we have no direct connection to the Creator, so people look to an intermediary. Mary is certainly someone that even I aspire to be like. A person who worshiped and obeyed the Creator completely. But I have seen - and had done myself in the past - worship the wrong person. One only needs to learn and feel whole-hearted in their prayer to connect to the Creator.
