Recently I was listening to Catholic radio and I heard the commentator/guest say that since all prayer is imperfect ( it contains traces of pride. etc.) and Jesus can accept nothing that isn't perfect, prayer should be directed to the Blessed Mother and she passes it on to Jesus.
All my life I have prayed to Jesus as if he were a personal friend.
I have the greatest respect for the Blessed Virgin and pray to her BUT must I direct every prayer to her so she can filter it for Jesus? This is distressing to me.
