Kecharitōmĕnē doesn’t mean nearly what the RCC tries to inject into it. Anyone can use a Greek Lexicon and find that Mary was given grace by God but not to the extent of veneration that Catholics want to portray.

I would be willing to bet, that using your Greek Lexicon, that you wouldn't be able to order lunch or find the rest room in first century Alexandria or Athens, let alone use it to comprehend the mysteries of the universe.
