Mariology for Everyone #9 ( 20min) Play - In this session of Dr. Mark Miravalle’s complete Marialogical course he addresses the question of whether Catholics worship Mary.  He does this by:

- Relating devotion to justice, according to St. Thomas Aquinas
- Making a distinction between Latria, Dulia and Hyperdulia
- - Latria for God alone
- - Dulia acknowledging the excellence of a creature, saints
- The nature of worship and many confusing senses of word
- Different senses of the word Cult
- Dulia is in between Latria and Dulia
- - Different from Latria in kind not degree
- - Reasons Mary deserves a higher Dulia, Her prerogatives
- - - Mother of God
- - - Immaculate Conception
- Devotion to Saints goes beyond them to God the creator of them.
