Posted on 12/22/2014 9:13:52 AM PST by Salvation
Featured Term selected at random:
Entreaty in favor of another person; hence mediation. In biblical language, "there is only one mediator between God and mankind, himself a man, Christ Jesus, who sacrificed himself as a ransom for them all" (I Timothy 2:5-6). The Blessed Virgin, Mediatrix of all graces, the angels, saints in heaven, souls in purgatory, and the faithful on earth intercede for mankind by their merits and prayers.

Of course. As a sister once told me, make friends with a Saint, they will pray for you when you are busy. They have nothing else to do. :)
