Hail mary .....mother of god..
What does hail mean??? worship cathloic is pagan religion, which has invaded christianity, kicked and god and jesus out and replaced with mary.
I am not Roman Catholic....But Theotokos,Mother of God(meaning the 'bearer' of Christ)
In the New Testament....there is that Mary shall be Blessed and many will call upon her for help....If I am allowed to quote///Luke1:46
''And Mary said,My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47:And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
48:For he hath regarded the low estate of His handmaiden:for, behold, from henforth all generations shall call me blessed.
Mary Mother of God........is regarded as the Mother of all and intercedes on our behalf because of our sins.......we lower ourselves because of our
faults and ask for help from those that were close to God our Lord Jesus Christ.......
Also in the Old Testament there is proof that God does hear those prayers of the faithful...
Quote//The Lord commanded the friends of the long suffering Job, who had offended him, to ask his prayers:Go to my servant Job, and he shall pray for
you,for him will I accept, lest I deal with you after your folly(Job 42:8)
Because of the prayers of the rightous the Lord often spared people who had sinned.
And the Holy Apostle Peter clearly promised his disciples that after his death he would remember them:Moreover,I will endeavour that ye may be able
after my decease to have these things always in rememberance(11Pet.1:15)
In the book of Revelation the visions of St John the Theologian demonstrated that saints do pray for us, and their prayers, like smoke from a censer,
rise before God, and He receives them with favor.
