Why do you think that the reason the Bible was written is for Jesus AND Mary?
This has always been my biggest problem with the Catholic religion- the worship and idolization of Mary. Don't Catholics actually believe to
actually come to Jesus you must first go through Mary?
Here is a quote from Mary Ann Collins, a former nun of the Catholic Church:
One popular prayer in Mary’s honor is the "Hail Holy Queen," which is known in Latin as the "Salve Regina". It is traditionally included as part
of praying the rosary.
For Catholics who are reading this, please try to overcome your familiarity with this text and really look at the words. Doesn’t this sound like
"Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy! Our life, our sweetness and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our
sighs, mourning and weeping, in this valley of tears. Turn, then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile show
unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary."
No where in the Bible does it say anything about "praying" to Mary for salvation, yet the above prayer says for Mary to show us the way to Jesus.
In fact, the whole Rosary is about Mary! When you say the prayers of the Rosary, you are praying to Mary!
John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me".
Here is something else all together that is very interesting from Mary Ann:
"Pope Benedict XV said of Mary that "[O]ne can justly say that with Christ, she herself redeemed mankind." (Note 10) Pope Pius IX said: "Our
salvation is based upon the holy Virgin... so that if there is any hope and spiritual healing for us we receive it solely and uniquely from her."
A lay movement called "Vox Populi" ("Voice of the People") gathers signed petitions to send to the Pope, seeking to have him officially declare
that Mary is Co-Redemptrix. Over six million signatures have been sent to him, representing 138 countries and all seven continents. This doctrine is
supported by over 40 cardinals and 600 bishops worldwide."
So over SIX MILLION people from the Catholic Church want to change the view and role of Mary within the Catholic Church, but the Pope will not because
the Catholic Church has been doing this for so long that to change and recant their view of Mary would probably be an act of heresy. In fact, the
last official Spanish execution for heresy occurred in 1826. A schoolmaster was hanged because he substituted the phrase "Praise be to God" in place
of "Ave Maria" ("Hail Mary") during school prayers.
Please don't be angered by this. I urge you to go visit Mary's website and just read what she has to say.
