Yes many people do throw stones at us over that, it's like they love the milk (new cannon) and not the cow (The Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church) who made it, we love Jesus our savior with all of our hearts, and we love all his brothers (those that do His Father's will>..includes Mary & the Saints). It's like when u get married, u marry into the family, and welcome them in your home, and ask them to pray for you. Prayer is not the same as worship: look it up people!! Luther himself believed in her perpetual virginity, and how we could not honor her enough. ex: an artist does not get upset when u admire the work of art he created.
When we pray the Rosary we are actually using scripture!! I wish ppl did their homework. Remember that Satan is the one who is Mary's enemy: don't let urself get driven by that. If you have doubts on any of this: look into the Ark in Samuel2. It stayed in Obededom's home for 3months and blessed it: as did Mary in Elizabeths home: and David says the same thing when his Lord's Ark comes to him, as does Elizabeth when the Mother of our Lord (Jesus& God) goes to her home: and David dances with joy as St. John the Baptist does in Elizabeth's womb, Christ is the word incarnate: MAry is the Ark of the New Covenant.
PROTESTANTS: ONLY THE DEVIL PROTESTED.
Mary said YES!
Why do you ask your Pastor to pray for you? Does he not then intercede for you in prayer to Jesus? Read Revelations: where the prayers of the riotous are take to God.
And I love the KING JAMES BIBLE VERSION 1611 =) it says St. Mark, St. Luke, St. John etc, and the language is very good for defending our Holy Catholic Faith =)
Love you all....seek the truth is our responsibility...once we find it we are to unite ourselves with it.
