I was wondering if they can speak about Mary a bit? I don’t understand how Catholics pray to Mary. Can you explain it to me?

How do you know which parts of the bible you are supposed to follow?

What kind of birth control can you recommend for my husband and I? We have a lot of debt and don’t feel like we are in a position to have children.  

I go to an Anglican church and would consider being Catholic but the Anglican Church is more reverent than the Catholic Church so I’m sticking with the Anglican Church.

My parents have a problem praying to Mary and what to know where the bible says that we need to pray to Mary. How can I answer this?

What is the Church’s teaching on creation vs. evolution? How are the two related? Can you recommend some sources that I can study?

How would a Catholic justify holding Mary in such high esteem; why do Catholics believe that she is able to answer prayers; why does she have such a high place in heaven, and why is the Pope able to serve as the Christ’s vicar on earth?

Are you familiar with counter-apologetics website “Iron Chariots” and what do you think of the rebuttals to all the common Catholic arguments?
