Mary makes intercession for us

 

 

The Catechism of the Catholic Church declares that Mary makes intercession for us ‘This motherhood of Mary in the order of grace continues uninterruptedly from the consent which she loyally gave at the Annunciation and which she sustained without wavering beneath the cross, until the eternal fulfilment of all the elect. Taken up to heaven she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation.... Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix’ (969). ‘We believe that the Holy Mother of God, the new Eve, Mother of the Church, continues in heaven to exercise her maternal role on behalf of the members of Christ’ (975).

 

Confutation

 

The Scripture states that “there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5 – NKJV), and also that “He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them” (Hebrews 7:25 - NKJV). As you can see there is only one mediator between God and us, his name is Jesus Christ, and the intercession made by Him in heaven for us is sufficient, for it is written that He can save us to the uttermost.

Mary is in heaven, for when she died she went to heaven to be with the Lord, but there she does not pray for us rather she praises God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. To believe that Mary makes intercession for us means to believe a lie conceived by the devil in order to lead many people to call upon Mary rather than the Lord Jesus Christ, and to rely on her inexistent intercession rather than on the true and constant intercession made by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ at the right hand of God the Father through which every believer can be saved to the uttermost.

If you are a Roman Catholic, you must understand that in order to come to Jesus you don’t need to come to Mary first, for you can come directly to Jesus Christ for He said: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28), and through Jesus Christ you can come to God the Father. Therefore call upon the name of Jesus Christ, He can hear you, He is ready to save you from your sins and to help you, and He will reveal to you the Father. Mary can do nothing for you, on the contrary Jesus can do everything for you if you call on His name. Stop praying to Mary immediately and call on the name of Jesus in truth and in faith: I assure you that He will answer your prayer.
