Mary Blessed Amoungst Women
  
Because the Bible also tells us to pray for one another. Therefore I ask many to pray for me as I will pray for others, too. I believe that by praying with and for others, we profess our relationships with one another in the one family of God and that God is pleased when we help each other. And He said when 2 or more are gathered in my name...And in heaven there are definitely more than two gathered. So I will also ask all in heaven to pray for me. That is why I sometimes ask others to pray for me.

The misconception is the word 'to'. When someone asks Mary, alive in Christ, St. Paul or St. John, to pray 'for' them 'to' Christ they are asking that all prayers go TO our Lord. Note the words"TO", "FOR", and "ALIVE". And don't worry about it, because God knows exactly what we mean when we pray. The best thing is not to tell others that their prayers are wrong. Only God knows what is in our hearts. The answers to the questions seem to get off the line of the question. Peace.

Moderator - Why not pray directly to God like the Bible tells us to do?

Yes, Philomena! Ex 25:God's instructions on the building of the Ark of the Covenant with the purest of materials; The New Covenant, Jesus, was given to us through God's own creations. Certainly,He would place the New Covenant in the best of human beings(born of both the woman and the Spirit)(She replies-yes, read Luke.) Also, see Jn 2:5 -Mary at the first of her Son's miracles (we should follow her advice) "Whatever He says to you, do it."If we love her as Jesus does, then we will understand.


Rosary Beads Or Holy Spirit
  
In answer to the question, 'If you need a rosary to assist you with your prayers etc, then what is the Holy Spirit for?' The Holy Spirit is needed to understand the Rosary. So,with an open and loving heart, ask the Holy Spirit to guide you without bias to the best of references from the Roman Catholic Church.

Moderator - The Holy Spirit says its pagan and against the Word of God.

1)I am so glad that you think better of women than 'human petri dishes'. You are correct in that she is the 'human vessel' in which our Lord, Jesus, came to us. The difference between her and the rest of us is that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit whereas the rest of us were conceived by two humans. Let us not forget that Jesus, fully human and fully Divine, was born to a woman God had chosen. What a privelegde and a responsibility for her that she did not question.

ACatholic, you put it very well, when you spoke of Mary.
The question on the blog...Look at the gifts of the Holy Spirit and then also realize that the beads are not necessary for prayer, just an extra way of praying.


Offending Each Other Blogs
  
Thank you. These blogs, I thought were for help, understanding, explaination, etc. It does seem that there has been some namecalling which is not a Christian attribute. Thank you.

Jesus' Mother, Mary, was chosen by God. He could have chosen anyone from that bloodline. But He chose her. She submitted totally to God. She is important because she was chosen by the Most High, to bear our Saviour. She is impt. because of God, not because of the Catechism. The Church reaffirms that. Not all exRCC or allRCC have really studied with all their heart to understand and be knowlegdable enough to teach. But the Lord teaches us to Love...

O My! I cannot believe that someone just referred to the Mother of God as a "human petri dish"! Is that how you feel about your own mother? Where is the Love? These blogs are beginning to sound as if there is no love for the Lord's mother! God is life and life bears life,remember the vine and the branches? Remember the Commandments? Remember"...and the greatest of these is Love"? Remember the Holy Spirit's part in this?

Part 2: If one is meditating on the Gospels that is meditating on the life of Christ, which Mary happened to be a part of, but the focus is on Christ. Again, notice that we all agree that God receives the prayers prayed by us as well as those you ask to pray FOR you. There is no worship going on except to God.

Moderator - If that is true, then just skip the pagan Rosary and pray directly to God.

part 1:The question: 'What is the Rosary?' a method of counting while meditating on the Gospels. Check out Philomena's reply earlier. Also, did anyone actually READ what was written about the Saints/saints? No one is worshipping them by asking them to pray for us. And as far as not knowing who is in heaven, I believe that Mary, Peter, Paul and many others are there, so what harm is it to ask them TO PRAY FOR US.

Moderator - God forbids it - that is the harm.

no matter who is doing the praying, be it Saints or sinners. A Saint may be asked to pray for someone just as you or I may be asked. That doesn't mean that the Saint is being worshipped. Maybe, that will help. But I think the question was,"What is the Rosary?" check earlier blog about method of counting while meditating on the Gospels.

THere seems to be some confusion. I hope that this helps. When people ask others, on earth or in heaven to pray for them, they are NOT giving worship to these people. They are ASKING to be prayed for to the Lord. Some use the word "pray" as meaning worship while others, as in other countries, as well as in America, use the word "pray" to mean ask, hope, aid.
But all these are in agreement that the only worshipping going on is for God and all the praying goes to Him....
