an object of catholic worship but is forbidden to worship idols in the Bible.It has no power at all.The cross without anything hanging on it is used by the church of Jesus(Baptists,methodists,etc) as a reminder of what Jesus did for our salvation and not to worship the cross but to worship God Himself. The cross is only stating the person or church Worships Jesus & is not an object for our worship.You worry for nothing.God loves you & wants you to know Him.Need help for being saved,contact me & be glad to help.I am a Baptist servant of God.

I found a Jesus cross last year and this year I found the blessed mother pendant. I just found another blessed mother pendant a week later.. So I have two.. I put the first one around my neck...I looked it up and this is what it says... Those who wear it will receive great graces, especially if they wear it around their neck." So let's just say that we're blessed.. <3
I am only answering this question so that you understand the Catholic viewpoint. We don't worship Mother Mary; we venerate her. When we are in times of trouble, we pray to her to intercede, to pray on our behalf. So yes, that necklace with the Blessed Mother on it is special. I'm sorry this sounds harsh, but I wish other dominations would stop believing we worship anyone but God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. I'll keep you in my prayers. God bless. <3 -a Catholic teen
Jesus Christ said: “You should pray like this: ‘Our Father in heaven . . . ’” He also said: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through me. . . . If you ask for anything in my name, I will do it.”—Matt. 6:9; John 14:6, 14
Mary was proclaimed by the Church to be The·o·toʹkos, meaning “God-bearer” or “Mother of God.” However, neither that expression nor the idea is found in the text of any translation of the Bible.
Our last glimpse of Mary in the Bible does not show her being bowed down to and worshiped as “Our Lady”, the “Blessed Virgin”, but rather we see her in an upper room together with other faithful women and the apostles and with her other sons, there worshiping God and his Son Christ Jesus. (Acts 1:13, 14)
