Question: I would like know why should pray to mother Mary.I have no satisfied answer this question to protest believer. I am catholic , but yet not got blessing from Mary. could you help me How I get Blessing from mother Mary.

Answer: Hi Anand, the Catholic Faith encourages us to pray to the Blessed Mother because she is our intercessor before Jesus, her Son. As intercessor, advocate, and mediator between Jesus and us, she helps bring our prayers and petitions before Jesus.

She is our intercessor before Jesus because she is the true mother of Jesus the Son of God. Jesus chose to go to the world through Mary. As such, it is only proper that we go to Jesus through her.

When we pray to her, she brings her prayers before her Son, who can refuse her nothing - for as long as what we ask for is in accordance with His Divine Will.

Isn't it that in our world today, whenever we want to reach an important person, we try to seek help from someone close to that person to intercede for us? You do not just knock on the door of the President of the United States and talk to him directly. Instead, you try to find the best way to reach him - through someone close to him, someone whom he cannot refuse, such as the First Lady perhaps.

It is the same with Jesus. The best way to Jesus is through His Mother.

Great post. NEW

It is best to answer the people in this way that help them to see the things they don't know about. Some students ask for where to buy essay papers because they really need to get help from there.

Praying to Mary is never Biblical NEW
by: Anonymous

the passage you sited was when Mary was still alive. A dead person can never hear our prayers. It is appointed for a person to die once, then judgment. It is always different to ask to a living person to "pray for me" than to pray "to" a dead person. Only Jesus can hear our Prayers.
For God will not share His glory to others and that is because He deserves all the praises and glory, when i say "ALL" that is all, no-one else.

Christian Trinity doesn't invole the mother. NEW
by: Anonymous

Actually, we don't pray to Jesus but to God through Jesus, because he's the way, the truth and the life to his father. our trinity doe not involve the mother at all as we are forced to, but only the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Mary's Intercession is Biblical NEW
by: Armat Mata

The intercession of Mary is indeed Biblical, why do you say that it's not found in the Bible. It just shows that you are not reading the Bible. In the Gospel of John Chapter 2 Verses 1-11, Jesus performed His first miracle, turning water into wine at the wedding at Cana through the intercession of Mary. In fact, Jesus declined first saying, "My hour has not yet come". But Mary insisted by telling the servants to "Do whatever He tells you". And Jesus performed the first miracle. Not Biblical?
