Here are a few more answers to your questions:
It is certain that growth in the holiness of God is your vocation.
This rings true ,but when I look around me I find it hard to see it in other Catholics. Can i invade their privacy by asking such questions?
*********Our call to holiness is from God and each of us will be responsible to Him for what we have done with the graces He has given us. We do not know the heart of others, but we can pray for them and try to help them grow in holiness as well. We do this best by giving good example -- living our faith -- and learning more each day about our faith in order to answer questions.
4 God chose her to be the treasurer, the administrator and the dispenser of all his graces, so that all his graces and gifts pass through her hands. Such is the power that she has received from him that, according to St Bernardine, she gives the graces of the eternal Father, the virtues of Jesus Christ, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit to whom she wills, as and when she wills, and as much as she wills.
Any links to this -(this is total power)
*******Mary does not have the total power which belongs to God alone. Any power she has, she receives from Him. God's Will has been revealed in His sending His Son through Mary. That choice of God remains constant. He continues to send His Life, His Grace, through her. If you have a Catechism of the Catholic Church, you can read more of the Church's teaching on this. There is an online version at: http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG0015/_INDEX.HTM
If you scroll down the contents to the section on the Creed in which we say "I believe in the Holy Catholic Church", you will see chapter 6 - "Mary, Mother of the Church" and if you click there you will find several paragraphs to help you.
If he prides himself on having God for his Father but does not give to Mary the tender affection of a true child, he is an impostor and his father is the devil.
So are protestants impostors?Or is this not true today?
***********"Imposters" is a strong term and I believe that St. Louis uses it in speaking of people he knew. He was making a judgment on their words as being untrue, even as Jesus did when he called the Pharisees "hypocrites". They speak of God but their words are not loving, nor do their lives show kindness toward God's Mother. How can they then be true children of God? Are they not choosing their own thoughts over what God has revealed? Are they not pretending to know God's Will better than He does? Now, I must admit that I know some Protestants that I would not call "imposters" because they speak kindly of Mary. I think they may be closer to the Truth, but they do not yet possess the fullness of truth. Pride is a terrible affront to God, however, and when we see it in some persons we need to pray for them and when we recognize it in ourselves we need to pray also.
