"Catholics worship statues, Mary and Saints."
This statement is pretty common, but untrue. Catholics don't worship statues. They honor Jesus, His disciples and the Saints all of which are highly regarded in the Catholic Church. Many question Catholics relationship with Mary, believing they worship her, when in fact they honor her, admiring her particularly for her courage and her willingness to serve God humbly and wholeheartedly. Catholics are not idol worshipers. Just as many Christians of various denominations have and carry things around them that remind of us Jesus, like a cross necklace, or a wall cross, many Catholics have pictures of Jesus, His disciples and the Saints that also remind them of those they highly regard.
