To Worship is to show reverence and adoration through the performance of various religious rites. For most people, this is done for Divine figures. For others, those they worship might not be Divine, but are often still supernatural. Some may even worship living (or, more correctly, once living) beings- like Ancestors or Heroes. One thing is certain, however, and that is that worship is often the touchstone of religion; those to whom we devote ourselves in the name of our faith are often integral to our practices in many ways.
Topic Two: Worship
Which Gaelic Gods do you Worship? Do you worship your Ancestors or otherwise participate in Ancestor Veneration and related practices? What about the Gaelic Heroes? The Fae? How long have you Worshiped them? Who came first? Last? Second? How did you establish your relationships with them, and how important is that relationship to you? How integral is that relationship to your spirituality? Your religion? Your every day life?
