Isn't asking dead people for prayers idolatry?

Hypocritical catholics.

No, it would be idolatry if they did actually pray to them as one would god.

Asking a dead person to pray for yourself or someone else is as useful as asking other living people to pray.

Don't misunderstand, praying directly to god is just as useless.

Mother Teresa to be Canonized
Mom is right. Technically, Catholics do not pray to the patron saints. Some Catholics say in conversation, "Pray to St. Etcetera for guidance," but as she said you're asking for them to have your six.

As a kid, I did ask what the difference was, praying to God versus asking Francis of Assisi for help from God. No one gave me a straight answer. When I was older, I figured it out on my own. Still sounded like semantics to me, but at least it helped me start thinking on my own.

How do you ask a dead person to pray for you?
Do you pick up the phone, write a letter, think it inside your head?

What's the difference between praying (a.k.a. thinking inside your head - asking god to do something for you) and thinking inside your head - asking a dead person to do something for you (a.k.a. asking them to pray for you)

Hitchens was a much better person than mother Theresa.

Nobody wants to be a good Catholic until St. Paddy's Day but they don't go to Mass like I do on St. Paddy's day therefore will never measure up. The great Mother Teresa did and by god witnessed miracles there like the rest of us. Come to Mass and see for yourself to qualify.

What miracles have you witnessed? How exactly did you determine that they were miracles?

"God" is not an answer, it's a way to avoid having to look for answers. It's also not something yous said in your statement. duh.

I repeat, what miracles have you witnessed? How exactly did you determine that they were miracles?


It must be something about being called "Pops"...
