I’m not sure what forum this should go in. I’m trying to give a brief explanation on Papal Bulls, Moto Propio, Apostolic Letters and Encyclials. Plus can anyone think of other names of letters that come out of the vatican and what each one are compared to each other.
Re: Praying is good but learning how to pray is vital.
Praying is a relationship with God. Praying to other titles and names is not in the bible. Moses was used of God and even Esther was used of God we do not pray to them and there is a reason.

But let’s not take my opinion for it let’s examine the bible together…
