You have to understand the concept of intercession in prayer. If you don't or won't, then forget it.

Catholics do not worship Mary.

Re: Why do Catholics worship Mary?
You think "saints" are super holy men or women that Catholics vote into sainthood,

and therefore they can hear prayers in heaven, right?

You don't even know or understand that the word "saints" means "believers in Jesus Christ," right?

Am I incorrect?

Re: Why do Catholics worship Mary?
It is not that we worship Mary. We worship God, Mary, Jesus, all the angels and saints.

What are you a grammar Nazi? Okay let me rephrase that. We PRAY to God, Mary, Jesus and all the angels and saints

Huh? No.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76092714


Okay, as far as I know, Saints are people who died for their faith. Like faith in God, Mary, Jesus, and all that. Most of the saints that I know are from the Catholic church because I am catholic and I only know the things that were taught to me. I am not sure about the other churches like Orthodox, etc.

Re: Why do Catholics worship Mary?
Please show us a single verse from The Bible that indicates in any way that anyone should ever pray to Mary, angels or other people in heaven.

You will not find any such thing.

You don't know The Bible. You don't know what God says.

You believe the Men of Rome.

Re: Why do Catholics worship Mary?
You first need to understand the difference between worship and prayer. We "pray" to the Blessed Mother...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75857658


She's understood by the illuminated that she is actually a representative of the goddesses of the past, namely Semiramis. But also Astarte, Isis, Diana, Venus, Aphrodite and on and on. You call her the queen of heaven and that's blasphemy. She's not the mother of God and she wasn't a virgin her whole life.

Jeremiah 7:18-20. Queen of heaven and Gods fury

The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. Do they provoke me to anger? saith the Lord: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces? Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, mine anger and my fury shall be poured out upon this place, upon man, and upon beast, and upon the trees of the field, and upon the fruit of the ground; and it shall burn, and shall not be quenched.

Matthew 1:24-25 Joseph had sexual relations with Mary after Jesus was born!

Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus.

Notice how Catholics don't quote the word? Jesus is the word made flesh, stop worshipping in a dead pagan religion and start reading the word of God. " Open rebuke is better than a hidden love, faithful are the wounds of friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

The pope (Caesar) is your enemy, I'm a brother in Christ Jesus and I'm rebuking you out of love and want you to be born again and no Jesus personally! All you Catholics read revelation 18:4-5 and know he's talking to you who know Jesus yet are in an apostate church, false religion!

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying,
Come out of her, my people,
that ye be not partakers of her sins,
and that ye receive not of her plagues.
For her sins have reached unto heaven,
and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Because they are idolaters, they worship the Christ when he said all glory unto his father, they worship the Christ's mother when Christ said all glory unto his father, they worship the Saints when Christ said all glory unto his father.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75596533



But Jesus said to him, Follow Me

And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.
But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.
I do not receive honor from men.
But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you.


For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me.

I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.

For I have come down from heaven

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life.

I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?


I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.

Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.

If you love Me, keep My commandments.

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.


These things I command you, that you love one another.
If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
