    Many people on this world, in North America, in Europe, in Asia, in Africa, and in Oceania pray and ask Mary for the help. Can she listen to all the prayers from all over the world and answer to them?

    Could she do so while she was alive?
    If not, could she become much more powerful after she died ?

    Is Mary alive now or dead?

    What is her position in the presence of God, when you ask Mary for any help?

    Any persons who address their prayer to Mary, please answer the questions above.

    I think if you want any responses, you should ask these questions on a board where there are people who pray to Mary.

    Mary is not omnipresent. Only the Trinitarian God is omnipresent.

    Mary is in heaven. She is not more "powerful" because of it, and no one should pray to her.

    If Mary is omnipresent, then I am omniscient.

    I do not think very many claim Theotokos is omni-present. Rather she is the mother of the Church and as such intercedes and prays for it. But Christ alone is our Salvation. If anyone teaches that Mary is omni-present it would just be another RCC heresy.

    1. Do you mean that she is still alive and she prays God to help you ?

    2. Who does she pray for ?
    for you alone ? or for the whole 1.3 billion Holy Roman Catholics ?

    3. Do you pray to her? yes or no ?

    4. Don't 1.3 billion Roman Catholic pray to Mary ?

    If 1.3 billion pray to Mary for the help, doesn't it mean that they believe the Omni-Presence of Mary, and therefore that Roman Catholic is worshipping Mary as Goddess?
    Isn't Roman Catholic the biggest Heresy ?

    There are many on this BB who say they pray Mary. But on this question they cannot answer and therefore are just quiet.

    check out thru BB and ask Nate as he says :
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Rather she is the mother of the Church and as such intercedes and prays for it
    ______________________________________________________________________________________________________

    How can any one say Mary is Mother of Church?
    How can anyone say Mary intercede for the church ?

    Is it Nate alone ?

    Catholics often call Mary as Mother of God.
    Mary as Mother of Church

    Bible says Church is Bride of Jesus Christ.(Eph 5:25, Rev 21:2)

    Mary was the mother of Jesus.

    Then, to Catholics, Mother becomes wife ?

    Is Briony-Gloriana not a RC ?
    Does she not pray to Mary ?
    She is on this BB. Ask her.

    I noticed many actually being RC on this BB. They may not want to disclose their belief when they are in the impasse of their belief.

    Ok, first it was Nate, now it's Briony-Gloria. How many times do you want to move the goalposts on this one?
