ADORE is a new ministry of the Diocese of Houma/Thibodaux in Lousiana

Their inspiration: The Catechism of the Catholic Church, #2097:

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 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 us free from turning in ourselves, from the slavery to sin and the idolatry of the world.

ADORE focuses on non-liturgical worship mixing contemporary Christian music, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and teaching. They offer regular gatherings within the diocese but have started to take it on the road, traveling to 8 states in the early-mid September.

In their FAQ's, they answer some obvious questions such as:

ADORE sounds more Protestant than Catholic. Is it Catholic?

In the Spring of 2004, Pope John Paul II declared October 2004 through October 2005 as ?The Year of the Eucharist?. In October of 2004, the Holy See published ?Mane Nobiscum Domine.? There, Pope John Paul II urged the Church universal to ?cultivate a lively awareness of Christ's real presence, both in the celebration of Mass and in the worship of the Eucharist outside Mass.? In addition, the Holy Father writes, ?During this year Eucharistic adoration outside Mass should become a particular commitment.? ADORE seeks only to foster worship that integrates the potent wisdom of the Holy Father, as well as the timeless Tradition of Eucharistic Adoration, with the contemporary trends of modern worship.

As a Catholic, I worship on Sunday, yet, ADORE is designed to lead worship. Don't Catholics worship at Mass?

Yes, we worship at Mass. In fact, worshiping on Sunday at Mass not only integrates the third commandment into our lives, but the Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us that "God's first call is that we accept Him and worship Him." In fact, the Catechism goes on to say, "The Church and the world have a great need for the various forms of Eucharistic worship." Thus, there are other forms of worship, Sacramental and Eucharistic worship, which have their ancient place in the Tradition of the Catholic Church. So, while Catholics are morally bound to worship at Sunday Mass, there are other experiences of worship in our Tradition.

Bishop Sam Jacobs seems to be supportive (the director - a lay man - and the other main speaker - a priest who is also a pastor and in charge of seminarian formation - work directly for the diocese). It probably is not an accident that Bishop Jacobs is Chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Evangelization.

Take a look and tell us what you think.

When the Canadian government established a series of entomological laboratories during the 1910s, crop protection was a domain where provincial governments were already busy providing technical support to local agricultural associations. The establishment of regional laboratories resulted from the adoption of the Destructive Insect and Pest Act in 1910, legislation that portrayed insect outbreaks as an interprovincial or an international problem under federal jurisdiction. The natural order conceptualized by federal scientists and legalized by the Canadian Parliament initiated a process of centralization. As the knowledge produced by the federal scientists reinforced representation of natural phenomena that legitimated their involvement across the national territory, the federal government concurrently achieved a political order by which it exerted its power over both nature and nation.
