Why would the Creator of the Universe need intercession or advice -- from anyone about anything?
Absurd.
Yes, you are absurd.

God doesn't require the intercession.

We do.

FM-
Very disappointing here.
Reduced to a gadfly, resorting to calling the Virgin Mary names to evoke a response?
Don't be so pathetic.
Why lie and claim Mary said this?

"You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pope Pius XI."

Mary? World War 2?

All miraculously announced after the fact! Why?

The RCC uses Mary like a pimp. The pimp dresses her up and then uses her in an immoral way for his gain.

<quoted text>No of course not,and the truth be known Anthony,we are going to face a lot more hardship in this nation because of the INFANTICIDE of our unborn.It is just as much a blight and an abomination to all non[-Catholic Christians who love and worship Christ.AND besides Anthony what you see in America today is not a Protestant stronghold,but a diversified hodge-podge of pluralism,not protestantism or Reformer faith.
Our great Awakenings in this country called for the true and living worship of Christ,that kept the morals of our peoples,but now we have atheism,homosexuality and a government that along with world motives,are seeking to delete large populations through abortion.BECAUSE they are fearful that over[-population will destroy the world.
We stand with the RCC against Abortion,and especially against partial birth abortions that our illustrious president again re-enstated from Bush.
I just thought I'd ask because you seem to echo Freemind assetion that Jesus is really impressed with the USA. I mean, if wealth, material possessions and the freedom to slaughter babies in the womb is so much more Jesus's ideal, then yes, He must've blessed this country with protestant leaders who have been at the forefront of it all...

I'd respond if you cited the quote.

Again, running the vitriol to provoke a response. Very middle school of you, FM.

Just provide information and I'll respond.

Pad was writing in support of Freemind's contention that Jesus loves the protestant founded and operated USA better than the poor Catholic countries where abortion is illegal, they don't have chronic obesity problems, lots of material wealth, plastic surgeons and lawyers on retainer, reality TV shows, etc...

But there's that double-standard again.

Nice spin.

OK, why would the Creator of the Universe need intercession or advice ABOUT YOU -- from anyone?

Or maybe you are saying it's just a feel-good thing, but otherwise it serves no Heavenly purpose. In this case, we agree.

Fear not.
The prayers are to God. We believe in intercessory prayer.
The following, from the Catholic Catechism, teaches to pray to Mary. No supporting Scripture listed...because there is none. This teaching is opposite of the teaching of Christ. He, per Scripture, taught we are to to pray to the Father in His name.

“Mary is the perfect Orans prayer, a figure of the Church. When we pray to her, we are adhering with her to the plan of the Father”(Catechism 2679)

The Borders and Divisions of the Land



13

¶ Thus saith the Lord GOD; This shall be the border, whereby ye shall inherit the land according to the twelve tribes of Israel: Joseph shall have two portions.


14

And ye shall inherit it, one as well as another: concerning the which I lifted up mine hand to give it unto your fathers: and this land shall fall unto you for inheritance.


15

¶ And this shall be the border of the land toward the north side, from the great sea, the way of Hethlon, as men go to Zedad;


16

Hamath, Ber'othah, Sibra'im, which is between the border of Damascus and the border of Hamath: Ha'zar–hat'ticon, which is by the coast of Hau'ran.


17

And the border from the sea shall be Ha'zar–e'nan, the border of Damascus, and the north northward, and the border of Hamath. And this is the north side.


18

¶ And the east side ye shall measure from Hau'ran, and from Damascus, and from Gil'e-ad, and from the land of Israel by Jordan, from the border unto the east sea. And this is the east side.


19

¶ And the south side southward, from Tamar even to the waters of strife in Kadesh, the river to the great sea. And this is the south side southward.


20

¶ The west side also shall be the great sea from the border, till a man come over against Hamath. This is the west side.


21

¶ So shall ye divide this land unto you according to the tribes of Israel.


22

And it shall come to pass, that ye shall divide it by lot for an inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn among you, which shall beget children among you: and they shall be unto you as born in the country among the children of Israel; they shall have inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel.


23

And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith the Lord GOD.

These statements from Our Lady of Lourdes? Showing the children what hell looked like... anyway my complaint here is the last few sentences. This is the Blessed Mother you are speaking of. Not a good description from you about Jesus' mother. How would you like it if someone spoke of your mother this way. I hope you ask for forgiveness.

Like so many other times, what the disciples thought was wrong, and Jesus made a teaching on faith out of their misconceptions. You are reading incorrectly. It is what they thought, and not what actually was real.
Jesus was not dead, or a spectre when he walked on the water. Neither was Peter when he got out of the boat, and Jesus pulled him up.
There you go again, making a conclusion on an event that was:

a. recorded many years after the supposed occurrance
b. exclaiming it was real, even when you weren't there to verify
+ "believing other men"

What evidence do you have to justify and correlate these occurrances actually occurred?

BTW - I was only using the link you provided as evidence.

As you can see, your evidence is lacking correlation and justification.

But what do you care, you beleive what men tell you to believe.

lol. day 400... free posted the s a m e thing again!
yawn.

What do you care what three little lies said Mary said?
In fact, why do you even care about anything Catholic?

Bottom line: you don't have the mental capacity to understand anything about Marian doctrine.

Mary is a powerful intercessor. But she only can assist us if we choose via our free will, to ask her.
God respects our free will. Mary or any other Saint has to respect our free will as well.
We caused ww2 .. plain and simple. Do not blame anyone else because your bigotry has clouded any hope of normalcy for the mind that's free. lol

That's nothing... Free called the Blessed Mother a narcisisst slut last yr. Then erased it. Then lied about saying it. Then re worded it.
No Protestant came to Marys defense. As long as it was trashing the Church, they were cool with it.

Some people are so stupid... they don't realize they are stupid.

BTW LTM - you didn't answer my question, but only diverted from it, and pushed that diversion back to me.
Well are you? You have run away from the words of Jesus that I've presented?
NASL, I don't answer you question, your questions are not clear.
In other words I don't know what you are talking about.
I don't think you do either, unless you are trying to tell me man is their own god.
Which I don't believe.
