Q. What is the
difference between the honor we give to God and the honor we give to the Saints?
A. Between the
honor we give to God and the honor we give to the Saints there is this
difference, that we adore God because of his infinite excellence, whereas we do
not adore the Saints, but honor and venerate them as God's friends and our
intercessors with Him. The honor we give to God is called Latria, that is, the
worship of adoration; the honor we give to the Saints is called Dulia, that is,
the veneration of the servants of God; while the special honor we give to the
Blessed Virgin is called Hyperdulia, that is, a special veneration of the Mother
