Sunday afternoon a good friend came by with her daughter whom I had not seen for about 4 yrs. We were talking about our gardens when all of a sudden her daughter 40 yrs. old…asked me “do Catholics worship statues?”.
I hadn’t been asked such a thing in years & I truly thought that idea had been put to rest. I really don’t think my friend or her daughter are what you would call ‘devout Baptists’, but I can"t help but wonder if this false belief… that we pray to statues…is taught from the pulpit?
I’ve never posted on the non-Catholic forum before & I’m not being confrontational. I’m just wondering if this came from her great-Grandmother or if it’s Baptist belief.
