Do Catholics Pray to Mary?
Last edited 15th May 2015

Do Catholics “pray to Mary”. No. Because we are “surrounded by a vast cloud of witnesses” it is best to say we pray “with” the saints. They are our prayer partners, and as the Blessed Virgin Mary is the Queen of that army of prayer warriors she is the primary saint with whom we pray.

The fresh green of Springtime in the meadows and olive groves contrasted with the vivid red of poppy flowers. The happy voices of three children playing as they watched over their families’ flocks rang out in the clear air.
