Protestant: Why do you Catholics worship Mary?
Catholic: We don’t. Catholics honor Mary. We worship God.
Protestant: Why do you honor Mary?
Catholic: We honor her because Jesus honored her.
Protestant: How do you know that Jesus honored her?
Catholic: Because of the fourth commandment. He obeyed perfectly.
Catholic: If Jesus honored His mother then why don’t you?
Protestant: The Bible doesn’t tell us to.
Catholic: But the Bible says that we are to imitate Christ in all things. (1 Corinthians 11).
How do you feel toward someone who loves your mother?
Don’t you love that person in return?

 

 

I would like to add that while the Bible doesn’t explicitly tell us to honor Mary, it does say that all generations will call her blessed (Luke 1:48) Ask yourself how you are concerned with this prophecy.
