MYTH #10 Catholics pray to/worship Dead Saints, there is one mediator which is Jesus

Catholics worship God alone.

Prayer on the behalf of others is throughout the bible.

As Christians we are all co-heirs with Jesus and and part of his body we are all co-redeemers and co-mediators.
Romans 8:17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs--heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

1Corinthians 12:27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it

2Thess 2:14 He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ
Acts 8:24 And Simon answered, "Pray for me to the Lord, that nothing of what you have said may come upon me." 

1Timothy 2:1 I desire therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men:

****The Saints are Alive.****
Mark 12:27

He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. You therefore do greatly err.
The bible tells us the Prayer of a Righteous person does much. Who more Righteous than the Mother of God and the Saints?

Proverbs 15:29
The Lord is far from the wicked: and he will hear the prayers of the just.

James 5:16
Confess therefore your sins one to another: and pray one for another, that you may be saved. For the continual prayer of a just man availeth much.

Revelations 8:4 And the smoke of the incense of the prayers of the saints ascended up before God from the hand of the angel.
