Does the Blessed Mother hear our prayers?

Can I change my patron saint? I have a confirmation saint but always felt I should have gone with a different one.

I hear a lot of Protestants use the term “my God” or “our God.” It sounds odd to me, using a term other than simply “God.” Is there something wrong with this construction?

I am going through an annulment. I feel like an outcast because I can’t receive communion and it is very discouraging. Isn’t there a danger of the Church losing members because of this?

How would I respond to my atheist friend who says it doesn’t seem like Jesus dying and rising was much of a sacrifice since the whole time he knew he was going to rise.

I’ve been Catholic for about a year and I’m concerned about the lack of unity between Catholic Churches in what they believe and what they practice. Why do you think this is so?
