It does if the rendering is for "her", if a earned trust has been developed. Playing telephone with another party only leads to a poor delivery of any message that could have been precisely delivered by the originating party.<quoted text>
You asked why the CC teaches that we can ask Mary to pray for us. I was trying to illustrate why.
Not saying a man with dirty calloused hands is lesser. I am saying that due to the special relationship between king (God) and queen (Mary), the king is more likely to grant a request from his queen (due to who she is more so than what she is asking) than he would grant a request from someone with whom the relationship is not so close.
At the wedding at Cana, Jesus performs the miracle of water to wine at the request of Mary. The CC teaches that Mary and Jesus still enjoy a very special relationship in heaven and she still asks for miracles to be performed for us people because she loves us. She loves us so much that she willingly bore Jesus, raised Him, and saw Him to the cross so that mankind might be redeemed.
Any successful business man will verify that fact.
Why would God need an intercessor, if he is omnipotent? He should already know what is coming before the event even happens, so why the play acting?
