  1. Her message is, “Do whatever He tells you”. But didn’t He tell us to pray, “Our Father”, not, “Hail Mary”?

  2. Hi, the link to your blog or website isn’t coming up but I’m guessing that you’re not a Catholic?

    Anyhow, a lot of non-Catholics have a hard time with this prayer, Mary as a mediatrix, and the whole idea of intercession. The Catholic reply is that non-Catholics on Earth pray for each other. So why should we not ask someone in heaven to pray for us?

    Generally speaking, Catholics tend to be more sympathetic to the spiritual side of things than their non-Catholic counterparts. That’s *not* to say that they are necessarily more spiritual or ethically better. But it is to say that their discursive structures accommodate mysticism better than some other Christian denominations. So for us this makes sense and isn’t a big stretch.

  3. Michael,

    I do not currently have a blog or website and you are correct, I am not a Catholic, but I am familiar with the Catholic faith. I understand your reasoning for praying to certain saints but your reasoning is in direct conflict with God’s word. Why would you want to practice something that is in direct conflict with the words or Jesus?
