Jack said: Mary, Mother of the Word Incarnate, who was assumed, body and soul, into Heaven, is most certainly deserving of directed prayer
But NOWHERE does Jesus say to pray to his mum!
On the contrary, he said- "Ask anything in my name and I'll do it" (John 14:14)
Alternatively he said we can pray directly to God. When people asked him how to pray, he replied "Our Father which art in heaven..."
See, no mention anywhere of praying to Mary or any other humans!
I bet Satan is chuckling at fooling catholics into wasting their prayers on Mary..
