As Christians, we focus our hearts and minds on Christ and on Christ alone.
But Christ is everywhere present, so your heart and mind should be on everywhere too.
Jesus saith unto him, I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
There is a reason why the focus of a true believer of God should be on Christ the Son instead of the Holy Father or the Holy Spirit, not to mention the church or everything/anything/all things (as you implied), which are merely God's creation.
提摩太前书 2：5 因为 神只有一位，在 神和人中间也只有一位中保，就是降世为人的基督耶稣。
Fifteen rosary promises ("Virgin Mary" was claiming to be God, wasn't she?)
A tradition held by the Order of Preachers (also known as Dominicans) holds that through Saint Dominic and Alan de Rupe, the Blessed Virgin Mary made fifteen specific promises to Christians who faithfully pray the Rosary. The fifteen stated promises range from protection from misfortune to meriting a high degree of glory in heaven.

Alanus de Rupe (Alain de la Roche) was a 15th-century Dominican preacher, best known for his efforts to promote the Rosary. Alanus claimed to have experienced a vision by which it was revealed to him that the Blessed Virgin Mary had appeared to St. Dominic and gave him the Rosary as a means to combat the Albigensianmovement. Alanus de Rupe's revelation concerning St. Dominic and the Rosary was generally accepted until the 17th century when the Bollandists concluded that the account of Dominic's supposed apparition of Our Lady of the Rosary is not mentioned in any documents of the Church or Dominican Order prior to the accounts of Alanus over two hundred years later.
Fifteen rosary promises
The 15 promises fall under the category of "private revelation", and as such are a pious tradition, which a person is free to believe or not believe.
Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall receive signal graces.
I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.
The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.
It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the heart of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary shall not perish.
Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries, shall never be conquered and never overwhelmed by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided death (unprepared for heaven). The sinner shall convert. The just shall grow in grace and become worthy of eternal life.
Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.
Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have, during their life and at their death, the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.
I shall deliver from purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in heaven.
You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.
All those who propagate the holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.
I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death.
All who recite the Rosary are my sons, and brothers of my only son Jesus Christ.
Devotion of my Rosary is a great sign of predestination.

1 Timothy 2:5 King James Bible
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
讀經要讀上, 又讀下既, 唔好只看一句, 一字。
首四節都是鼓勵人互相懇求、祈禱、轉求和謝恩， 無理由一到第五節就自己反駁講過的， 說一切都無效， 中保只有一個？
說明， 中保一字， 除了救贖者的意思外， 還有其它含意。
那麼， 諾厄， 亞巴郎也曾與神立約， 都是「中保」？
