I don’t know what you mean by invoke. It is not a term that is used by anyone I know.

morning_star, I think the word you mean is “intercession” as in asking the Blessed Mother to intercede for us (“invoke” is sometimes used in older written prayers). These three articles should help you better understand and explain to others the Catholic belief and practice:
