The Malicious Mangling of the Virgin Mary

You are correct in that the first Church was not Catholic as we now use the term. Worship of Mary did not commence for hundreds of years. In the beginning followers of Christ had one Father and no Pope. The Catholic Church did preserve much of Scripture but it added a raft of practices never imagined by the Apostles. But, anti-Christ has learned that too many people worship Mary so it becomes necessary to have an anti-Mary movement as well. But, God is not mocked - whatever these people gain in anti-God movements, they will rue when they stand before Him.

do you never ask your friends, you relatives and your co-believers to pray for you and your intentions?

why would asking the saints and angels who live in the presence of almighty God in heaven be any different?

Catholics do not "worship" Mary. your very statement that they do reveals your profound ignorance of catholicism.
A Christian can be crushed gazing at the picture of Mary standing at the foot of the cross, watching her beloved son suffocate and die. But in that vision, she stands there for hours, patiently enduring her suffering. For two millennia, she has been a role model for Christians, a woman who practiced obedience in the most difficult of human circumstances, with fervent hope for what this sacrifice will offer all mankind as it struggles with sin.

This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
