I’m new here so please be patient with me.
I’m a cradle catholic which has recently returned to the church.
One of my childhood friends is a born again christian. I believe she has a true relationship with christ.
This was a small part of my returning to the church.
She has numerous objections to catholic practices.
How do I respond to her in refrence to Mary. She believes in Gods word only direct from the bible. She doesn’t think we should pray to Mary. I tryed to explain we don’t pray to Mary we ask Mary to pray for us. Intercede for us. She thinks we pray to statues also.
I know in my heart I’m in the right church. I believe in the presence in the eucharist and have some I’ll call a spiritual experiences having to do with the eucharist. I just don’t know my bible very well. She says show me in the bible.
Any input is appreciated. I may be seeing her very soon.
