Is this a prayer parody or is it one you made up? Just asking because I don't recognise it.

fwiw, the Hail Mary is Catholic, not Christian. Christians do not pray to Mary.

What's the difference? What is the difference between a Catholic and a Christian? I'd LOVE to explain but these forums really aren't the place for it.

If you are Catholic, you are a Christian, but if you are a Christian, you are not necessarily a Catholic. The one is a subset of the other. Simple enough, I think.

Actually not really.
Christians believe that Christ paid for their sins in full and accept Christ's gift of grace (forgiveness without merit)

Catholics believe that works earn ones way to salvation, e.g., salvation is based on merit.

Different theologies, and folks unfamiliar with what the Bible actually says regarding salvation understandably confuse the two..

Christianity is a monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth as presented in the New Testament writings of his early followers.
...
Christianity encompasses numerous religious traditions that widely vary by culture and place, as well as many diverse beliefs and sects. It is usually represented as being divided into three main branches, over the past two millennia:

1. Catholicism (includes the largest coherent group, the Roman Catholic Church, including Eastern Catholics, representing over one billion baptized members),
from wikipedia
Christianity is the belief in christ. Catholics are not Jews, muslims, bhuddists, etc. because those religions do not believe in Christ as the son of god. Since catholics believe that christ is the son of god, this qualifies them as christians.

The analogy could be made to the puritans(colonial period) and the Anglican church. The puritans were anglican, but were a sect of anglicanism

Speaking as a Mormon, I have no problem with the separation of Church and Linux.
