Q:  I have been following the prayer book guidelines this week but would like to understand about the mid day prayers that are directed specifically to  angels, apostles, and martyrs. Why is this? Is my understanding of Christ being our one Advocate incomplete or wrong? This was the issue I had with the Catholic church so I do not understand this conflict of praying to entities other than Christ.  I look forward to your clarification.  Many blessings for your patience with my growing process
