Catholic prayers, liturgies and Sacraments begin and end with the sign of the cross and the words, “In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen (so be it).” We do not simply tack these words on for dramatic effect. They indicate that we live and move and have our being in the Holy Trinity.
The claim that Catholic Christians somehow circumvent Jesus or do not go “directly to God” is a myth spread by ignorance of Catholicism and sometimes overt, anti-Catholic sentiments. Even when we ask Mary and the saints for intersession, we are only able to do so through the one mediator, Jesus Christ. We (including the saints in Heaven) boldly approach the throne of the Almighty Father through the mediation of the Son and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
