Washed, Sanctified and Justified
in the Sacraments of the Catholic Church.

Another thing that I would like to address:Tom says: "If we were meant to speak/pray to other believers who have died in the flesh and are now we assume to be with the Lord, wouldn’t one of the Gospel writers, or Paul, or any of the other writers of the epistles (especially Revelation) have mentioned that such a practice occurring or admonished us to do so." Then Tom needs to explain the Sacrifice of the Mass and how the whole Mass is performed. Where is this written in the Scriptures. He also needs to show me how the "anointing of the sick" is really performed since the actual prescription isn't written in the Scriptures.Tom also needs to read the Early Church Fathers to see how far back the practice of Praying to the Saints go. Tom also needs to explain why Raphel was taking Tobbit's prayers to God and interceded for God. Tom also needs to explain why God had the three men who challenged Job, pray to Job for forgiveness then have Job pray to God on their part.I'm beginning to see why protest-ants don't believe in Catholic doctrines....they don't read the Scriptures.
Thanks for contributing.
