Do Catholics Worship Mary? - Sadly, yes they do.

Catholics are quick to say they do not worship Mary, but it is obvious they actually do.

Millions of Catholics all over the world pray to Mary expecting her to hear, understand, and somehow help. If Catholics expect Mary to be able to simultaneously hear millions of prayers in all the languages of the world, understand them all, and also have the ability to somehow help in answering them, then obviously they believe that she possesses godlike powers.

If Mary was to be a central figure of worship, why is she not even mentioned in the all the writings of the apostles Paul and Peter?

If Mary was to be a central figure of worship, why did Jesus say otherwise when a woman attempted to exalt Mary in His presence as recorded in Luke 11:27-28:
27 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the
company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb
that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.
28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word
of God, and keep it.

If Mary was to be a central figure of worship, why is this never instructed in the Bible? Nowhere in the Bible is it ever said that we should pray to Mary. The Bible says instead, For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, in 1 Timothy 2:5.

The Catholic religion instituted the worship of Mary. The Catholic religion also once outlawed the Bible. If you read the Bible, you know that worship of Mary is completely against God and His Word.

Jesus Christ willingly laid down His life on the cross to pay for the sins of the world. He is not willing that any should perish. His desire is that all would put their trust in Him for salvation and receive the free gift of eternal life. To think that He needs help or encouragement to answer prayers is an insult to His mercy, love and grace. To pray to any other than Him is idolatry and robs Him of His glory.
