Before starting, let me say that I am 100% confirmed Catholic, the problem is with my sister in Christ, a co-worker, a protestant to be exact.
Today in the office (BTW I work in a protestant organisation) there was a bit of discussion about Mary. She says that there is nowhere in the Bible, that says you have to worship Mary and all about rosary and “Hail mary”. But, I asked her to give her Bible and pointed out to Revelation 12, where there is a discussion about the Woman and the dragon. That the woman will bore a son who will rule the earth with an iron scepter.
She says that Revelation is too complicated, but asked me to think about salvation, baptism which is very simple for lay person. I said it’s just Revelation is so simple.
I’ve her Bible with me on my desk now, where in Luke 1:28 it’s written “Greetings, you who are highly favoured!” Apparently, it’s altered translation. They base everything in Bible. How can they claim that it’s right when they alter it for their own good?
I want to drive out to the point that we don’t worship Mary. She says that Catholics never agree that we worhip Mary, but they (protestants) believe we do worship Mary.
Although, I’ve much to argue, I’ve controlled myself then. But, now I want to get a crystal explanation to tell her tomorrow
