Pope: Pray to Virgin Mary as «Queen of the Family»

Pope Benedict XVI on Malta: I am «pleased» to be able to pray before her «as a sign of our shared filial affection for the Mother of God».

There is no end to idol worship promoted by the Vatican. Here from the city of Rome.

The Pope turned to Marianism on his visit to Malta. He asked that she be prayed to as «Queen of the Family», a title introduced by Pope John Paul II to the Litany of Loreto.

Together with the faithful in Floriana’s Granaries Square, the Holy Father prayed the Regina Coeli in Malta on Sunday. Before the recitation of the Marian prayer with thousands of Maltese on Sunday, he acknowledged Malta’s particular devotion to Mary and presented a special gift to Our Lady of Ta’ Pinu.

The prayer took place just after Sunday morning Mass celebrated in the same square, the largest on the island. For the celebration, a painting of the Virgin was brought to the square from the island of Gozo for the occasion from the Shrine of Our Lady of Ta’ Pinu.

Recalling the Maltese tradition of trust in the Blessed Virgin Mary for protection and prayer intentions, the Holy Father recognized the «great fervor» with which the people of Malta express their devotion to the virgin.

My comment:

The Pope has called the Catholic Church to repentance, because the leadership of the Church has hidden Pedophile priests. But is stead of asking God the Father for pardon and mercy, the Pope put his faith in paganism.

There is not a single word in the Bible that says that Mother Mary is the Queen of the Family. Neither is there any Bible verse that permits Christians to pray in her name, and that she will show them favor.

To the radical opposite, the Bible warns us not to pray in any other name than Jesus. When we elevate the Jewish mother of Jesus the pagan «Queen of Heaven» we mock the living God, and bring a curse down on our own head.

Jeremiah 7:18

The children gather wood, the fathers light the fire, and the women knead the dough and make cakes of bread for the Queen of Heaven. They pour out drink offerings to other gods to provoke me to anger.

1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

  1. You lack tremendous understanding in your vitriol against the Mother of God and in paticular your vile hatred of the Catholic Church. You do not even follow Jesus’ command to love your enemies!

    It would literally take pages to answer your claim that Mary is not mentioned as Queen in the Bible. Instead I would like to challenge you, that if you are so right that we Catholics are wrong then read why we disagree with your viewpoint and that she can be defended Biblically, in fact Catholicism can be defended Biblically. If you have the TRUTH as you claim you have, then you should accept this challenge. I have learned alot from my Protestant brothers and sisters, perhaps you can be at least openminded enough to read why we can biblically defend our faith. In the end you still may hold the same viewpoint, or you may not. One thing I do hope is that you stop attacking your fellow Christians with such hatred. Truth will stand on its own.
    Please do not distort the same old cry that we Catholics WORSHIP Mary! It’s ignorant to begin with because the Catholic church does not consider Mary another God. There is only One God. You see this procession through your cultural viewpoint and judge it to what you believe it to be. You lack understanding of the Early Church and what was believed and passed on by people who knew the apostles. Read what the Early Church Fathers had to say about Mary. Could they be sooooo wrong, and you so right, thousands of years later? Was all of Christendom wrong and led astray until the 1300’s. then an uneducated monk set it all straight! (by the way read what Martin Luther had to say about Mary, it may shock you)Even the Eastern Orthodox venerate Mary! Are they all led astray also?They call her Theotokos (meaning Mother of God). I know plenty of Born Again Christians who balk at that title yet St Elizabeth greeted Mary as the Mother of my Lord.
    Please take up the challenge and read

    A Biblical Defense of Catholicism by David Armstrong
    sophia institute press puts it out

    Also Scott Hahn (a former Anti Catholic who expoused the same vitriol against the Catholic faith as you)
    has written a book entitled Hail Mary Full of Grace in which he biblically defends Mary and the Catholic position of her.

    If you are right then your faith will be strenthened,
    but if perhaps your viewpoint and understanding is wrong then your faith in Jesus still will be strenthened an enriched. You have nothing to lose, either way. If you do not have time to read then you can obtain copies on cd of lectures given on the subject through Lighthouse Media their website is

    1. Dear Pat.

      Shalom, and welcome back with your comment:

      My reply:

      A lie is not the truth, even if the lie has been told a million times. Martin Luther, the Church father`s who ever pray in the name of saints, madonnas and the Jewish mother of Jesus are wrong. Let all men be liars, but God of the Bible the truth. Please use scriptures, and live by the Word of God.

      Jesus tells his followers to make it through the narrow gate. Most of the human race walk by man made rules, and will end up in Hell. With the blessings from paganism of different kind.

  2. dear friend in jesusl, the real problem in this world is not vergin Mary but poverty and hunger and also mis management of nature.so we,let me say christian brothers (catholics and non catholics)can condribute a lot for the above said through their words and actions and prayers (it must be filled with truth)…………………thank you,,bose

    1. Bose,

      Luke 21:10 -11
      Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

      Understand that these things must come to past, before King Jesus descends from the heavens, with power and great glory. Indeed, we should help those who fall victim of these occurrences, and we can start by spreading the good news of Jesus Christ!

      Romans 8:18
      I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
