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, as Mary did in the Magnificat, 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.
