I know about adoration to Jesus, never heard about Mary until it was hinted at in another post.

No we do not worship her. We honor her as you would honor your own mother. As you ask your own mother to pray for you. We worship God. Again we seem to need a vocabulary lesson . Pray, to ask or plead. Not worship, Worship is another word altogether.

No, we don't. OP- there are many, many fundamental Christians that spread lies and misunderstandings, and in some cases, hate about the Catholic Church. Simply put, we love Mary because she was the mother of Jesus- we love Him so naturally we love the one who birthed Him. She had the cahones to say "yes" when most would have said no. She is not divine. We do not worship her any more than we worship our own mothers. We do recognize that she was specially hand picked by God to be the mother of the Christ. What does she always say? "Listen to my Son".

So what does "adoration to Jesus" mean? Adoration seems interchangeable with venerate & revere (but not with worship). Does the adoration of Jesus have a special meaning within the Catholic church.
*I fully understand that Catholics do not worship Mary, I am just wondering about the wording "adoration."
