    46:45 – Whenever I talk to a Protestant, their first objection to Catholicism is praying to Mary, saying there is no biblical evidence for it. I reference the wedding at Cana. Am I going about this in the right way? 
    51:41 – Protestants ask me why Paul or Peter didn’t pray for the intercession of the Old Testament saints in Scripture. How can I respond?
