Day 9. In other news, "Hey Jason, what do you do to preserve your chastity?" I'm glad you asked. I pray to Mary. A lot. [Pagan.--ed.] Sue me. It beats, 'Remember you're already forgiven and victorious,' whatever that means.

Not to quibble, but that's not really the alternative is it? Perhaps in pop-evangelical circles, but not any confessional tradition I know. I seem to see the Reformed folks just urging us to pray to our Savior, which is precisely what I do and take comfort in. Of course, as you know, Mary may be the *biggest* sticking point for me with Catholicism even though I understand the arguments.

The 'communion of saints,' correctly ascertained, is the basis for all Mariology. And I regard all prayers to Mary as prayers to Jesus, because that's how she thinks of it, and what she does.
