PatriotsUnderGod, I am shocked...

that you believe that our incense in our Church is for anyone other than Jesus, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit. Have you ever been to a Catholic Mass? How can you say that we Worship anything other than the true living God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit? And the Queen of Heaven? Everybody knows this is Mary, the Virgin Mother of God, and we honor her just as Jesus did under His own commandment, Honor thy father and thy mother. We do not offer incense to Mary, only God, just as the early Jews did at their altars, and is done in the reference in Revelation, where the prayers of the people on earth are like incense to the Lord. I am not sure what denomination you are, but as a Catholic I believe in two major things that the Protestants do not believe, and that is in the Authority of the church and in the Eucharist, the greatest gift of God to Mankind. Read John chapter 6, and you will understand why we believe the way we do. Caution: John 6:66 says that many left Him after the "difficult" teaching of consuming His Body and Blood, a teaching that the Catholic Church has never waivered on. One other warning to you and other anti-Catholics... Jesus talked about the unpardonable sin, blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, right after the Scribes and Pharisees said that Jesus performed His miracles only with the help of the devil. If you associate the devil with the Catholic Church, and you are wrong, have you committed the unpardonable sin??? I would be very careful and know everything about the Church before I would speak evil about it, as the Lord will be your Judge. God Bless, and keep an open mind to the Truth of Jesus and His Church....
