EWTN.com - Marian Prayers Before the Blessed Sacrament

EWTN.com - Marian Prayers Before the Blessed Sacrament: "Q: In a number of countries we pray the rosary and the litany of the saints with the Blessed Sacrament exposed. When we believe Jesus Christ, who is fully alive, is present in the Blessed Sacrament, is it right to pray the rosary or a litany in which we address our prayers to Mary? When Christ is present before us, why should we take a roundabout way through Mary to Jesus, instead of praying directly to Jesus himself? I would be very grateful to hear from you because I am quite disturbed when this happens in my church. I love the Blessed Mother and pray to her, but sometimes I feel that we give more importance to her than to Jesus. -- T.N., Manathavady, India

A: This is a question that often arises and which we have addressed on other occasions, most extensively a year ago on Oct. 26, 2010."
