Not really. The difference between Protestant interpretation of Scripture vs. Catholic interpretation, is that when Catholic interprets the Bible there is a unity in all. Many of the Catholic apologists advised Catholics who want to dig into Apologetics have to pray and mediate, and to read the entire passage of Scripture.
For example, a Protestant might throw you a Bible verse like, “For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,” 1 Timothy 2:5, and by this passage alone. They can interpret that. “See you cannot pray to the saints and Mary. There is only one mediator Jesus.”
Well, is that what the entire passage trying to say? Let’s take a closer look.
Let us start with 2 Timothy 2:1-7. If you want you can continue to read the entire chapter.
Here is the verse.
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be made to all men for kings and all who are in high position, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly, and respectful in everyway. This is good, and it is acceptable in the sight of God Our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, the testimony to which was borne at the proper time. For this I was appointed a preacher and apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.”
Paul here urges all to become intercessioners in Christ Jesus and urge leaders of high position to do the same.
This is just one passage that supports that veneration of the saints and have them pray us is “acceptible” to God.
