Jesus is the one mediator between God and man, but that lesser mediation

can be undertaken by Mary and the saints (I Timothy 2:5).


In order to introduce other mediators into "Christian" thinking, Satan

waited until the reality of Jesus' presence was lost by a backsliding

church. As Jesus became more obscure, most thought of Him as a far-away

Majestic King. Because He was thought inapproachable, a second mediator was

sought. At the same time, pagan forms were coming into the church, and the

female deity of paganism was introduced under the name of Mary, and prayers

were made to her.

To most Roman Catholics, Mary is the primary mediator to whom they turn

for help.
