Bread From Heaven: Well, it is really very simple. We do not believe Mary and the Saints are dead. We believe that our bodies die but our souls are eternal. Our souls will never die. After death our soul goes immediately to be judged. We are then sent to Heaven (by way of a purification, if necessary) or Hell. At the end of time Jesus will resurrect our bodies and they will once again be joined to our souls in Heaven or Hell.
Even Jesus said,
Matthew 22:32 ‘I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB’? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.”
Therefore we do believe that Mary and all the Saints are in the very presence of God and are able to intercede for us. I hope this helps you understand.
