Catholic Answers Live - Bible Blueprint for Marian Dogmas

May 14, 2020

What does the Catholic Church really believe about the Mother of God?

Questions Covered:

 
  • 21:03 - When someone said to Jesus, “Blessed are the breasts that nourished you,” and Jesus responds, “No, blessed are those who do the will of God.” Is this evidence against Marian devotion? 
  • 28:56 - Are the Marian doctrines based on the Bible?  
  • 35:30 - What is the difference between venerating and worshipping Mary? How can I explain this to a Protestant? 
  • 47:50 - Why do Catholics use intercessory prayer to Mary?  Why do they offer votive offerings to her, like lighting candles or giving flowers? Does that fall into the category of making sacrifice to something other than God?
