Catholics worship God because they believe He is their Creator and that adoration, Thanksgiving, petition and reparation are due to Him for His many blessings and benefits He has bestowed, especially that most basic of things, our own existence. Catholics believe that God created us to choose, of our own volition to love Him, to choose to worship Him as a Father, not just a distant Creator. Through this relationship, loving, serving and worshiping God, Catholics have Faith and Hope that they will come to be with Him forever in heaven.

Who do Catholics worship besides God?

Catholic AnswerThat depends entirely on how you are defining "worship." If you are using the word "worship" as most protestants in the English speaking world currently use the word, you are referring to the adoration that is due to God alone. In that sense of the word, Catholics worship God, and only God. As He is the only Divine Being, our Creator, and Eternal, He is the only thing worthy of Adoration. Catholics call this latria. So to answer your question, in that sense of the English word, worship, Catholics worship nothing besides God.
