Q1: God saw Adam was alone in the garden and so gave him a mate, Eve. But I don't see how this made Adam any different from all the other animals. Didn't all the other animals have a mate already. Weren't they all made male and female. If so why was Adam the only animal made male only. If God made all the animals male and female at the beginning why didn't He make man Male and Fem,ale at the beginning? How does being male and female make man any different from all the other animals?
Q2: Can you explain the Catholic fascination with Relics?
Q3: As a Catholic, I'm interested in learning more about Mary, but I'm afraid of going "overboard" with it, as many Catholics do. Do you have any advice?
