This post is full of lol. My mom is catholic, and I promise you that they do pray to christ. The hail mary is a prayer asking Mary to pray for us sinners, not to forgive us of our sins. The Fatima prayer is one such prayer if you need an example.
And Vicar of Christ means representitive of christ, not that he is actually christs replacement.
Anyways, all religions have their flaws, but going back to the church has helped my mom out tremendously, so I'm much less inclined to knock it these days. Many people tend to take their religion and twist it, despite that many do teach tolerance.
