46 And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord.

47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

48 Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

Re: Can Roman Catholics point to scripture where it states that I must pray to Mary?
There’s nothing that says you must... but also, Catholics don’t pray to Mary, they are asking Mary to pray for us. The most common prayers are the Hail Mary and the Magnificat:

These prayers can be found in the bible:
The greeting of Elizabeth to Mary and
The greeting of the Angel Gabriel to Mary

Hail Mary:

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee
Blessed are you among women
and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus
Holy Mary mother of God
Pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death, Amen

Note the last line is asking Mary to pray for us...
These lines are comprised of the greetings to Mary in the bible here:

Luke 1:26-29 Greeting of Angel Gabriel
Luke 1:39-46 Greeting of Elizabeth

The Magnificat follows the Greeting of Elizabeth in the bible:
Luke I:46-56

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has looked with favor on his humble servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed,
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear Him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for ever.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever.
Amen, Alleluia.

In this canticle that Mary sings, the lines state that “all generations shall call me blessed” which is what people do when they recite the “Hail Mary”. It says that Mary is glorified through God. She reminds us that God is merciful.

The Rosary is comprised of the Apostles Creed, the Hail Mary, and the Our Father

The Our Father is found in scripture: Mathew 6:9 where the disciples ask Jesus how we should pray, it is the prayer that Jesus recommends

So the most common prayers about Mary are all biblical scriptures. The scripture that shows that it is appropriate to address Mary are at the Wedding at Cana, (John 2:1-11) Jesus respects his mother’s wish to perform a miracle giving the bride and groom more wine by changing water into wine even though it is “not yet his time” to reveal himself. This shows that Jesus listens to his mothers wishes as a powerful intercessor for human’s basic needs.

So Catholics are asking Mary to intercede for us to Jesus, not answer the prayers herself.

Almost immediately after declaring his church would be built on the rock of Peter, Christ rebuked him, saying "get behind me satan".

To this day they still believe their earthly leader is an intercessor for men, when Christ made it very clear it was him and him only.

Re: Can Roman Catholics point to scripture where it states that I must pray to Mary?
The next question you are going to have is “why the repetition?” The scripture Protesants commonly cite is the one about the preacher on the corner. But Jesus says not to pray with “empty” repetition, and also not in order to be seen by others so as to be highly regarded by others. Matthew 6:5

But if a person is praying with their heart as they pray and is praying in a group because “where two or more are gathered” Matthew 18:20... Jesus is there, then there is nothing wrong with it. We are called to “pray without ceasing” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 and the angels also serve God “day and night”

Jesus also tells us to be persistent: Parable of the persistent Widow Luke 18:1-8

These prayers can be found in the bible:
The greeting of Elizabeth to Mary and
The greeting of the Angel Gabriel to Mary

Hail Mary:

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee
Blessed are you among women
and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus
Holy Mary mother of God
Pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death, Amen

Note the last line is asking Mary to pray for us...
These lines are comprised of the greetings to Mary in the bible here:

Luke 1:26-29 Greeting of Angel Gabriel
Luke 1:39-46 Greeting of Elizabeth

The Magnificat follows the Greeting of Elizabeth in the bible:
Luke I:46-56

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has looked with favor on his humble servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed,
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear Him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for ever.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever.
Amen, Alleluia.

In this canticle that Mary sings, the lines state that “all generations shall call me blessed” which is what people do when they recite the “Hail Mary”. It says that Mary is glorified through God. She reminds us that God is merciful.

The Rosary is comprised of the Apostles Creed, the Hail Mary, and the Our Father

The Our Father is found in scripture: Mathew 6:9 where the disciples ask Jesus how we should pray, it is the prayer that Jesus recommends

So the most common prayers about Mary are all biblical scriptures. The scripture that shows that it is appropriate to address Mary are at the Wedding at Cana, (John 2:1-11) Jesus respects his mother’s wish to perform a miracle giving the bride and groom more wine by changing water into wine even though it is “not yet his time” to reveal himself. This shows that Jesus listens to his mothers wishes as a powerful intercessor for human’s basic needs.

So Catholics are asking Mary to intercede for us to Jesus, not answer the prayers herself.

Leviticus 26:1
"Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the Lord your God."

why catholics are worshiping idols?

mary is dead, you should not pray to dead people, unless you are a witch
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78207453


It’s not worship, and Mary is not “dead” she is more alive than we are. God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is “not God not of the dead, but of the living” (Matt. 22:32; see also 22:23-33).

“Sometimes Fundamentalists object to asking our fellow Christians in heaven to pray for us by declaring that God has forbidden contact with the dead in passages such as Deuteronomy 18:10–11. In fact, he has not, because he at times has given it—for example, when he had Moses and Elijah appear with Christ to the disciples on the Mount of Transfiguration (Matt. 17:3). What God has forbidden is the necromantic practice of conjuring up spirits. “There shall not be found among you any one who . . . practices divination, a soothsayer, or an augur, or a sorcerer, or a charmer, or a medium, or a wizard, or a necromancer. . . . For these nations, which you are about to dispossess, give heed to soothsayers and to diviners; but as for you, the Lord your God has not allowed you so to do. The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brethren—him you shall heed” (Deut. 18:10–15).

God thus indicates that one is not to conjure the dead for purposes of gaining information; one is to look to God’s prophets instead. Thus, one is not to hold a seance. But anyone with an ounce of common sense can discern the vast qualitative difference between holding a seance to have the dead speak through you and a son humbly saying at his mother’s grave, “Mom, please pray to Jesus for me; I’m having a real problem right now.””

What else you got for me that you could just look up yourself instead of perpetuating ignorant nonsense misconceptions?

mary is dead, and she is not a God. Jesus is the only way, not mary, not catholics, not religion, not idol worshiping. why catholics have an image and statues of "mary"? they are worshiping that image. She is just a human like everyone else.

Are you worshiping your earthly mother when you ask her to pray for you? See protestants ask each other to pray for each other ALL THE TIME... why are you so blind sighted? Why so much hatred in your heart, why the hypocrisy?
