    Why is Mary so special in the Catholic Church?

    She was the mother of the Savior  and the chosen one to bear Jesus Christ

    Biblically, she was the only living human being taken up into heaven. Also, and more importantly for our needs, Jesus obeyed his mother at all times. So much so that at the wedding feast in Cana when they ran out of wine she told Jesus to make some. He explained that his powers were not meant to be used for such earthly and selfish purposes, but Mary told him to do it anyway, and he did. This sets a precedent. Mary can get her son to do things that he normally wouldn't be willing to do, and in Catholic apocrypha this includes forgiving someone who's supposedly unforgivable. That's why Mary is revered and prayed to: she's our woman on the inside.

    Sorry, no where does it ever say she was taken into heaven. She lived a natural life and is buried I believe in Turkey/Ephesus. Many believe that since she was a mother that she would be more compassionate and interceed on our behalf. That does sound good however-has anyone ever thought that she would have gone to hell if she did not accept Jesus as HER Lord and Savior? It is true-in John Jesus said no one comes to the Father but through ME(Jesus). No where in scripture does it mention her healing, etc. She had to ask Jesus for more wine, etc. She was human as us! I had a time when I was awoken from sleep and urged to go to the local hospital er to witness to friends of a man that OD'd on drugs. I ministered and left some tracts and left. That was what I inside was instructed to do. No audial voice,etc. How do I know this was GOD, because what I was instructed when I was awoken was exactly as I knew it was to be. Involving drugs,od, etc. That did not make in favor with the Holy Father mearly a servant like Mary was.

    I have read the Bible so thoroughly and made so many notes in the last 40 years that two of my bibles have totally disintegrated. I have found no mention in the Bible about Mary being taken to heaven. You need to read the Bible more.

    It was decided somewhere in the 1950s by the then Pope that Mary was in fact taken to heaven with body and soul.

    There are many such things which The Roman Catholic Church would like us to believe which are termed as Holy Mysteries because they cannot be logical truths.

    For that matter something like Jesus having brothers and sisters is denied by The Catholic Church when the Holy Bible clearly states that He did have brothers and sisters.

    The greatest sins which Catholics and some ignorant Christians are committing are idol worship, saint worship and repetitive prayers all of which is forbidden in The Bible.
