Worship & Sacraments
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul and with all your strength
Adoration is the first act of the virtue of religion. To adore God is to acknowledge him as God, as the Creator and Savior, the Lord and Master of everything that exists, as infinite and merciful Love. "You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve," says Jesus, citing Deuteronomy. To adore God is to acknowledge, in respect and absolute submission, the "nothingness of the creature" who would not exist but for God.
To adore God is to praise and exalt him and to humble oneself... confessing with gratitude that he has done great things and holy is his name.The worship of the one God sets man free from turning in on himself, from the slavery of sin and the idolatry of the world.
