How can you blend the mediation of others with that of Christ?

The Catholic Answers

It follows from the doctrine of the Communion of Saints. Remember that, by Baptism, every Christian is incorporated with Christ. St. Paul says, “Christ is the head; ye are the members.” So close is this union that Christ says, “Whoever gives you to drink a cup of water in my name, because you belong to me; amen, I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.” Mk. IX., 40. Every Christian is Christ in a most intimate way. St. Paul tells us that if a baptized person sins, he takes the members of Christ and makes them the members of iniquity! When that same St. Paul was persecuting the Christians before his conversion, Christ appeared to him and said, “Saul, Saul, why persecutest Thou Me?” He did not say, “Why persecutest thou My disciples?” He could equally say, when we pray to Mary or to the saints, “What asketh thou of Me?” When we honor Our Lady or the Saints, we honor, not their own merely human and created nature, but we honor Christ in them according to the doctrine of Scripture. The Catholic Church is the only completely scriptural Church.
