The Way to God

Is Mary the mediator between God and you? The Catholic Church would like you to believe so. In fact, according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church 969, Mary is accorded the title of Mediatrix:

This motherhood of Mary in the order of grace continues uninterruptedly from the consent which she loyally gave at the Annunciation and which she sustained without wavering beneath the cross, until the eternal fulfillment of all the elect. Taken up to heaven she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation … Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix.

Jesus is the only mediator between God and man. Jesus Himself invites everyone to come to Him directly, as we read in Matthew 11:28–30:

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

It is time for Catholics to wake up. They do not need Mary to lead them to God. From the idolatry of Mary worship, one can see that instead of getting closer and closer to God, Catholics are being led up the garden path, further and further away from God.

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. No one but Jesus can lead us to God.
