How many of you have heard this term used and the queen prayed to? I heard a non-catholic, Holy Ghost filled, fire baptized minister pray to the Queen of Heaven.
Is there any scripture that supports praying to Mary, the mother of Jesus about anything???
I was raised catholic and I remember being taught to pray the rosary as a child. (I haven't been Catholic since I was a teenager) But, I remember the prayer called HAIL MARY:
Hail Mary, full of grace.
Our Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
I prayed this prayer as a kid because I was told to do so but it never sat well with me. Even as a kid I was inquisitive and questioned everything people told me. I asked the nuns, "Didn't Jesus die for Mary also? If so, why should I pray to her?" As you can imagine, the teachers and nuns didnt like me in my little Catholic private school LOL
