On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we discuss one of the most common objections to the Catholic Faith, namely that Catholics pray to Mary and the saints instead of going directly to Jesus. This criticism, common among Protestants, is often rooted in the Bible’s directive to go directly to Jesus and His Father. Why then do Catholics pray to Mary and the saints and what is the basis for this practice? Join us as Fr. David Sherry helps answer this common objection while explaining the role of Mary and the saints in our salvation.
