You need to read Romans.
Paul says, (In the KJV):
“For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)”
I’ve read the entire Bible.
It’s all about the HEART. It’s NOT about praying TO Mary or other dead sinners. What is in your heart comes out through your actions. Elevating Mary to the level of Christ is WRONG on so many levels. Traditions and rituals won’t get you there either. Saying 52,000 Hail Mary’s and 700 Out Fathers won’t matter either.
Try reading this passage and applying it:
 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
