like in all religions, you have people interpretting the bible different ... catholics have a different interpretation of the bible than christians ... catholics have been labelled as non-christians on this site plenty of times and some catholic posters have left because of it ... i'd say don't worry if the guy is catholic .. if you wanna marry him, marry him!!!!!

She's showing good judgment by asking ?s first before getting too involved with someone who might or might not be compatible with her.

you have got some pretty good things on here to go on ... i was raised catholic and never thought of it as "praying to Mary" but asking her to pray for us ... but hey, i am just one pseudo-catholic .... but it is called a prayer .. so who know what the intent is ... here is the version i learned growing up ...

hail mary, full of grace, the lord is with the, blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, holy mary, mother of god, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death ...

fredo also says these as his trick to catching fish in godfather 2 .. great scene in movie history .. he doesn't finish saying it tho ..

It doesn't matter if they consider her above Christ, equal to Christ or just slightly below Christ, the fact that they pray to her at all is wrong and completely indefensible from a Scriptural standpoint.

As for asking Mary to pray for us, the Bible is very clear that Jesus Christ is the only mediator between GOD and man. So the idea of praying through another person has no basis in Scripture whatsoever.

This is exactly what I'm talking about Where do they come up with this stuff? It had to have come from somewhere.

Well then...lets here you put your money where your mouth is...and ban prayer requests on this forum

When two or three are gathered in my name..... What you just dont seem to get is that Romans make no distinction between Christians Past and Present. A dead Christian is still in communion with God, just as a live Christian is. A dead Christian is still part of the Bride of Christ, just as a live Christian is. When we mention "Community of saints" we mean ALL THE FAITHFUL...both dead and alive.

You talk to me now, you ask me to pray for you.....that is no different to a Roman, then asking Mary to do the same thing...you dont seem to mind living people praying for you...why do you hate dead people praying for you....They do not cease to exist because they have shrugged off their mortal coil.

Why Mary specifically? well probably because she is the closest to Christ in terms of the Biblical narrative. But the Romans dont just ask her for prayers...the sacred literny lists all the major saints of the Roman Church...the name is read alloud, followed by the word "oreamus" which means, "pray" bascially...again, another beautiful choral work...this particular piece was what the college of cardinals processed into conclave, they picked Francis, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CP0hE1qPhqg

I oughta add...the order of the procession includes Choir, followed by members of the Roman Curia, Former Cardinals who have retired, and Cardinals over the age of the conclave Vote, I think one of the final two is Bertone..Vatican Secretary of State. Then the active vote cardinals, and then the warden of the college...the pope...who shouldnt really be there, but retired rather then died, is last to enter...it should be noted that during the conclave that picked him, he was actually the Warden, and last in then also. Behind Benedict, but not officially part of the Procession is the Carmelengo...He is the person who organises and rules the vatican during an interegnum...Liturgically, they dont use that word...they call it "Sede Vacante" meaning The Vacant Chair...its a reference to The Bishop of Romes Cathedra...want to know some useless information? His Cathedral...his primary Throne, doesnt reside within Saint Peters Basilica. Of course not, because St Peters isnt in Rome, but in The Vatican, and so His Seat is as Bishop of Rome, in a Cathedral outside the vatican. Officially, the Pope therefore does not rule from Saint Peters Basilica....its a little known fact, even amoung Catholics

The Pope Rules from the ArchBasilica (as in, more important then St Peters) of Christ The Saviour And Saint John of Lateran. Similarly, his official residence is not the Apostolic Palace...but the Lateran Palace....As well as Saint Peters and Saint John Lateran...the Bishop of Rome can take jurisdiction over two other Basillicas in Rome who technically speaking are run by Priest and therefore dont really have a Bishop, they include Saint Mary Major, and Saint Pauls, which is technically speaking not in Rome, but "outside the walls" of the city.

...and tommorow March 12th is the same date this happened lol

It starts off with "Hail Mary", that throws me...she isn't a Redskin But why bother with that prayer when you can go straight to the source (God). Does it say in the bible somewhere that it's what you need to do our is it a made up thing by Catholics. That's another thing that blows my mind, where do they (Catholics) get the ideas that they "need" to do some of the things that they do when it isn't clear any where in the bible that it's what you need to be doing. That's why I think of Catholic more like "club"...or a gang even
