(1) Our Lady, St. Peter, St. John, St. Francis and the other saints aren't dead.

(2) There is a difference between asking someone in heaven to pray for you and claiming that someone in heaven is using you as a mouthpiece to communicate with others.

In other words, there is a difference between the Scripturally-approved doctrine of the communion of saints and the Scripturally-condemned practice of necromancy.
