I was raised a catholic and even at age 6 I couldn't understand why images and pictures of saints, jesus, mary, joseph etc are depicted.<quoted text>
Yes it is Rob, no images for anything in heaven in the earth or in the sea or beneth the sea angels are in heaven are they not.
there are images of Mary, the is an image of Jesus, there are images of saints. You claim Mary and the saints are in heaven, we already know Jesus is.
If these people really existed why create an image in your mind of something that isn't true or accurate.
I wouldn't cut a picture out of a magazine of a man and tell everyone this is my father.
The catholic image of the sacred heart of jesus picture is etched into the minds of all catholics. They constantly envision him looking like this.
If there really was a Jesus and he did return as promised and he was short, balding with a club foot NO CATHOLIC would ever believe it, because their minds have been conditioned from childhood that to be Jesus you have to appear a certain way.
Its all baloney! Marketing tools.
