Think about it like this:<quoted text>
Then why dies the RCC preach that subjects pray to Mary as the intercession to have prayers "relayed" in it's course to achieve it's destination?
"May we be assisted, we beseech Thee, O Lord, by the worshipful intercession of Thy glorious Mother, the ever-Virgin Mary; that we, who have been enriched by her perpetual blessings, may be delivered from all dangers, and through her loving kindness made to be of one heart and mind: Who livest and reignest world without end.
It appears you do not follow your church doctrine.
If you were to give something to a king, would it be wiser to hand it to him yourself, in , say a paper bag with your dirty fingers, or would it be wiser to give it to his queen who would place it on a beautiful platter and present it to him herself graciously?
If you were king, which would you prefer?
If the thing presented were a request or a gift, which one would you recieve more pleasantly and with a more favorable disposition?
If you were a king, would you be well pleased if the people in your court recognized and honored your queen? Or would you want to hog up all the honor to yourself and encourage the people to treat your queen like any other ordinary woman?
