I was talking to a non Catholic today and I told her I said the rosary everyday. She said that I should be just praying to God and why go through Mary. I said I’m not praying to Mary I’m asking her to pray for me. Then she came up with, Why ask a dead person to pray for you as the only one in heaven is God. For the first time in a lot of years I was lost for words. I did say you can pray for the dead but that’s not in their bible.
Also I've been reading the NRSV bible but I don't know if it is approved by the church or does it matter as long as I get what I need out of it.Thanks and God bless George
