Here’s a question:
We worship God alone. Are His attributes seperate from Him?
Meaning, is worship of His mercy for example possible?
God IS mercy, so to say “I worship your mercy, Lord” is it right or wrong?
What does Catholic dogma say? I’m sure a council has covered something like this.
Maybe there’s an anathema statement somewhere that says something like "If anyone says it is permissible to give adoration to God’s attributes and not to God alone, let him be anathema"
but then again, is God distinct from His attributes?
We’ll focus primarily on His mercy.
This seems like a complicated theological question!
what say you?
