That pretty much sums it up. However, the Catholic Church is more heretical than cultic. Most Catholic Churches have abandoned the Bible for the Book of Common Prayer, which is a book full of repetitious prayer and extrabiblical apostolic tradition.
I encourage you to help your friend to test her beliefs in light of scripture. God's Word(the Bible) is infallible! Like the great verse says, Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God!
If I can help in any way, let me know.
