i would please like to know why we pray to Mary if she is dead…i mean no one goes to heaven until we are all judged on judgement day right?? 1st thessalonians tells us that the dead in Christ will rise first. well that means we havent risen yet! which means the rapture has not happened yet!
then Mary is still dead! she will only be alive later when she is standing before God at the day of judgement!
but if she is dead why do we ask her to pray for us? HOW can she pray for us if she herself is still dead?
