  2. Great info, but I have a bone to pick with this video; it's we pray with the saints, not to.

  3. Patty, in the liturgy we almost always pray to God the Father, in some instances to Christ, eg, on the Feast of Corpus Christi. We never pray to Mary or to the saints in the liturgy. But elsewhere we do, eg, the Biblically-based 'Hail Mary'. Praying to Mary or to the saints is little different from my asking you to pray for me. And, yes, we can also pray with the saints. We do this especially when we worship God in the liturgy and are united with the saints in heaven who are worshipping him there.
