Mary is dead and you know it. She has not yet been resurrected.Mary is our Mother. Of course she knows each of us and loves us and prays for us. Much better than our earthly mothers do. What a comfort to know this! I don't see why anyone would reject her!
We pray to God in the name of Yeshua.
Jesus is our ONLY mediator.
Why go through another mediator?
Praying to Yeshua Jesus is far more comforting than praying to Mary who cannot hear us.
Ecclesiastes 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.
9:6 Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.
The assumption of Mary was invented by the RCC to explain the Rosary and why they are to pray to her.
