To tell you this, plain and simple…
Saint Mary cannot mediate for you to God.
“Saint Mary cannot mediate for me? Why not?”
Because it is written…
For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
– 1 Timothy 2:5 RSVCE*

“We Catholics don’t go to Mary as our mediator. Mary intercedes for us! Jesus is the one mediator. When we go to Mary, she prays to Jesus for us and He goes to God!”
Mary cannot intercede for you, either. It is written…
The former priests were many in number, because they were prevented by death from continuing in office; but he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues for ever. Consequently he is able for all time to save those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. – Hebrews 7:23-25 RSVCE
You are not supposed to seek the dead, such as Mary, to intercede for you. You are to seek Jesus Christ, who is the living divine Son of God, risen from the dead and ascended to Heaven. The passage above speaks about how Jesus continually intercedes for us. As it is also written…
And when they say to you, “Consult the mediums and the wizards who chirp and mutter,” should not a people consult their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living?
– Isaiah 8:19 RSVCE
Mary is not God as is Jesus Christ, who is the incarnate Son of God. You should be seeking God through His Son Jesus, who together with God the Father, is the same One God. Jesus is risen alive. Mary is not.
“Ah, but Mary is not dead! Jesus came and assumpted her body and soul into Heaven to be with Him.”
The assumption of Saint Mary is simply that. It is accepted as Roman Catholic doctrine as true and certain that it happened without proof, but only based upon presumption. Mary is yet dead because the Holy Bible teaches…
For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ. – 1 Corinthians 15:21-23 RSVCE
Mary will be made alive at the coming of Jesus together with all the other true believers in Jesus. She is not alive in the body yet. There is no proof she can hear you and there is no Biblical evidence that God has raised her up as an intercessor.
The Roman Catholic Church did not even declare the “Assumption of Mary” doctrinally until Pope Pius XII very late in 1950 A.D.
“Does everything God says end when the Holy Bible was completed? I believe He continues speaking.”
Everything God said as His covenant word is recorded in the books of the Holy Bible. Later writers were NOT writing the Holy Covenant of God and they frequently disagreed with each other on many matters. Their writings cannot be faithfully relied upon as Holy Writ. The Apostle Paul wrote…
I have applied all this to myself and Apollos for your benefit, brethren, that you may learn by us not to go beyond what is written, – 1 Corinthians 4:6a RSVCE
The expression “what is written” mentioned here is common in the Bible and refers to the Holy Scriptures themselves alone as it does elsewhere in the Bible. These other writings are beyond what is written in the Holy Scriptures.
You err by directing your prayers to Mary. If you believe you are getting answers by prayers to her, it could NOT have been Saint Mary answering you. Since you would be going beyond “what is written” by praying to her, who do you believe would be speaking to you? The devil is a deceiver.
If the Roman Catholic Church says that Jesus Christ is the Mediator between God and men, where do they come off by saying Mary is a Mediatrix? Pray to God solely through His Son.
how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify your conscience from dead works to serve the living God. Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant,
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. – John 8:36
