When Catholics talk about Mary they don’t keep repeating that she is the handmaid of the Lord and that everything she offers us is from God through Christ. It is understood and made clear in Catholic theology. But not all the Marian prayers say that explicitly. It is implicit in all of them. That is just a matter of trust. Trusting the church that she is not trying to hook you into some idolatry. Trusting Mary that she really is going to bring you closer to Jesus.
