When you walk into any Catholic Church, you will find a statue of Mary, in front of which you can see many votive candles burning. I have seen many people touching and kissing the feet of the statue. The Catholic Church has certainly made the Catholic Mary a second God.
The Catholic Mary is known by many titles, Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, to name a few. The rosary is a devotion to the Catholic Mary. The Catholic Mary granted fifteen promises to those who faithfully serve her by reciting the rosary.
The devotion to the Catholic Mary, however, is a blatant contradiction to what God Himself said in Exodus 20:3:
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
The Catholic Mary is clearly a work of Satan, whose goal is to confuse people and to turn them away from God.
And he deems the mother of Jesus to be the best means, which he first puts in the forefront of people so that they, due to their veneration and glorification, forget their real purpose of earthly life: to attain the bond with Jesus Christ Himself, which is the only guarantee for the salvation of the soul. Thus people carry out an apparently righteous act of love for the mother of Jesus, but Satan’s intended result is less love for the divine Redeemer Himself, Who more or less takes second place. (The Word of God, Proclamation 7460)
Through these apparitions he predicts forthcoming events to people, which he indeed knows will happen, and thus he creates an impression of credibility even though it is a strategy of disguise in order to cause even greater confusion. (The Word of God, Proclamation 7460)
But he cannot stop himself from demanding honour and fame, and does this through the mouth of those camouflaged beings of light by demanding the building of churches and altars where homage should be paid to him, because he himself hides behind such apparitions. (The Word of God, Proclamation 7460)
A true being of light will not persuade people to perform formal prayers for hours either, but motivate them to establish a living bond with Jesus Christ, where only and forever salvation is to be found. (The Word of God, Proclamation 7460)
My earthly mother will never want to be the centre of events which stop the masses from taking the direct path to Me; she will never try to draw people’s attention and thoughts to herself because it would be the same as slighting Me, to Whom she gives all her love and devotion. (The Word of God, Proclamation 7045)
The Catholic Mary is not the biblical Mary, a humble and willing servant of God, as we read in Luke 1:38:
And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word ….
Do not be deceived. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Only He can guarantee us eternal salvation.
