But its this one big issue - praying to someone who isnt God... I just cant do it.
Neither can we :-)
We don't 'pray' to Mary or the 'saints'; we ask them to intercede on our behalf. Oh sure, we also go to the Top and ask our Lord but we know from history (the Wedding Feast of Cana) that our Lord listens to His mother.
I have many times thought of becoming a Catholic
Then you will appreciate this story from someone who, in a million years, NEVER thought of becoming a Catholic, much less a christian. But God acts in extraordinary ways.

("Where the bishop is present, there is the Catholic Church" - Ignatius of Antioch)
'an elderly monk came out to speak with me. He approached and shyly asked, "Tell us, if you don't mind We couldn't help noticing that you do not receive communion, so you must not be Catholic. What then are you?" When I replied "Jewish", he grinned and with a deep sigh said "That's a relief! We were afraid you were Protestant!"'
LOL! Great story, thanks for the link.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
