Rosary

 Do you pray the rosary?  I was reading up on many of the saints and apparitions from the blessed mother and a common message is to pray the rosary daily.  Padre Pio said to pray the rosary as much as you can.  I pray the rosary almost daily.  I dedicate it to a certain saint that I am asking for help or I just dedicate it to mary.  Though when I pray the Hail Mary I really think about the words and I picture Mary standing there listening to me.  Praying is good only if you are present in the moment.  Reciting words and not thinking about them is a waste of time.  You have to really be praying with your heart and soul not just mumbling words but thinking of something else.

 What you're saying is sincere. But the whole praying to Mary comes from the old tradition that originated from Babylonian times when they were praying and worshipping to the queen of heaven (jer 7:18, 44:17,18,19,25). And God abselutely hated it.

I love Mary, and I can appreciate what good things Christians have done in the past (I wouldn't call only them saints because all Christians are saints). But those people are only human beings and cannot hear or answer prayers. That's something only The Father can do. 

Christianity has been corrupted by traditions of men, and every Christian should be careful when following certain doctrines and make sure that it is Biblical. In the gospels Jesus rebuked many pharasees for following traditions made by man that either contradicted or wasn't at all from God. 

Scripture doesn't say anything about the rosary, it's something that came through very acient tradition. When praying I would focus you attention to God the Father only and pray in Jesus' name. For Christians are called to have a relationship with Him. Anyone else who are no longer on this Earth is very wrong as it comes from pagan practices and is worshipping other gods which breaks the first 2 commandments. 

I love Mary and those that helped spread the Gospel, but in this life they can't do anything for me. They can't hear me nor answer prayers. Please focus on The Father.

Blessing,

Tib

 I hear what your saying Tib but I also know that miracles have come through the saints.  I also know that Jesus says to pray to Mary for her heart is broken for what was done to Jesus.  Many saints and Mary are ones who go to God and ask God to bless us so yes in the end the decision is up to God but saints and Mary are the ones that can intercede.

 You know Tib I can't find a single scripture, but I feel like I have heard that.  Unless I am thinking about how Mary says in the rosary keep me company for fifteen minutes a day.  I do know this though that my grandfather devoted himself to God but daily he said the rosary and Mary was his girl and you know he died on her feast day.
