Mary is DEAD and in her grave and was NEVER meant to be held up, worshiped, or prayed too! Pray to her is like praying to a tree...SHE CAN'T HEAR YOU!!!!

Mary is not in a grave. She was ascended into heaven. Thus the feast of the assumption. August 8th.

The ignorance you people put on display when you presume to explain the Church is truly appalling. The BVM is not the fourth person of the Trinity. She is someone who, while fully human, sets an extraordinary example of service to the Lord. Her humility and obedience is something to which we should all aspire. That’s why we pray to her – we ask the BVM to intercede for us, so we may have the grace to become like her.

Next time, try educating yourself before stupidly shooting off your mouth.

Good explanation. Wasted on those who know they can continue our, (US society), destruction through secularism.

For you, Britt, and others who do not know better. No Catholic worships Mary! No one! Recall if you are able that Christ never sinned and that includes that he always honored his mother. We, you should know, are to emulate Christ. And we therefore do as he did, we honor his mother. Are you even a Christian? If you are, do you not know that those saved by the Grace of God go to be with Him in Heaven where we are more alive with Him (as we know Him as He is) there in Heaven then we ever were here on earth. Mary, like her fully divine fully human son, is fully alive in Heaven. And yes through the continued grace of our Lord, can hear us and can pray for us. You know so little of faith.

Appearances can be deceiving. Catholics appear to worship Mary, the mother of God. I hope to ask her why someday when I meet her in person. I have to wonder how many actually do worship her, like they appear to do. Just as I wonder why so many Christians go to church and do so many things that aren't Christian. Although I have myself as an example I still don't understand. But at least my sins are forgiven. Maybe theirs are too.
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...
