I have relatives who are very upset that I’m hoping to join the Catholic Church and some have stated that they will have a better chance of achieving Heaven before I because I “pray to Mary.”
How do I explain to them that Mary is Subordinate to Christ? Is that not what Catholics believe?
How do I explain the Co-Redemptrix belief?
I honor Mary just as much as my own mother, and honestly even more… Yet I just don’t understand how to explain about the saints and Mary to those who believe they are not to be honored…
Any help is greatly appreciated!
