I know that this is not directed at me…but if I may…
You may certainly ask God directly for faith. There is no problem here.
As for the matter of Mary giving private revelation…you might be surprised at how often she does.
Look at it like this.
Heaven is not a lot of isolated individuals - it certainly is not described that way in the book of Revelation. Rather heaven is a whole body of souls all connected by union in Love with the God who is Love. And we are members (or potential members) of that family.
So - to bring this idea down to our level…
Suppose you walked into a room where your Father, mother, and elder brother were all sitting at a table. There is no doubt that these three are in complete agreement with each other and "talk things over with each other.
So - Which do you go to to ask for something?
If you ask mom to ask dad, will dad be mad??? Not likely
If you ask dad directly - will mom be mad??? Nope
If you ask your brother to ask dad - will the others be mad??? - again…the answer has to be no.
If you ask mom - mom is going to give you dad’s answer…That is why we say that going to Mary is a sure way to God to God.
It’s not a requirement…but it is good and it is comfortable for many…
Just some thoughts…
