As a Catholic, most of your beliefs are pagan.
Your religion loses the true meaning of Christianity (approaching God) by instead letting a bunch of dead "community heroes" and "sacred bones" get in the way.
So how often do you call on the saints? Venerating and summoning are two very different things.
We venerate saints every now and then especially on their feast day...so I am asking some Catholics so as to enrich our Catholic Faith.
Very interesting. Do they have different feast days or the same days?
I'm not Catholic and I don't know anything about your saints. But, I knew a girl whose daughter was miraculously saved when she prayed to one of them. There was no way around believing the prayer helped.
Oh, that is a miracle. Good story. Do you have a hub for that?
Venerating is not the same as worshiping them. The church teaches that while we are here on earth, we can ask believers to pray for our needs; and it continues after when a believer dies and is in heaven. They continue to prayer for us unceasingly. This is known as the Communion of Saints. It would make sense to think that when we reach heaven we can pray for others on earth.

Why do Catholics indulge in idol worship?When idol worship is forbidden for Catholics why do they have so many statues in the Church and why do they garland the statues, or light candles in front of them or even pray standing in front of them? Is this not idol worship?

What is the differenece between Christianity, Catholics and Roman Catholics? I've always wanted to know. Are they different religions or are they the same religion but different practicalities like Sunni and Shi'at in Islam?
