  VENERATION
Veneration may produce also respect for titles, rank, and power ; for a long line of ancestry, or mere wealth : and it frequently manifests itself in one or other of these forms, when it does not appear in religious fervour.
Veneration is one ingredient in the love of old coins, and in the tendency generally to antiquarianism.
I have found Veneration large in the head of the genuine Tory-in him who really delights in contemplating kings and nobles, and who regards them as invested with a degree of sanctity by being able to trace their descent through a long line of ancestry, and by the possession of hereditary authority.

 Veneration
In Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy, veneration is the act of honoring someone, and through them honoring God who made them and in whose image they are made.
This is often shown outwardly in the form of respectful bowing before a saint's icon or relics, usually while making the sign of the cross; kissing an icon or relic, or exchanging the "kiss of peace" with another person in some fashion; or any other culturally appropriate way of showing honor and respect.
Proponents of veneration do not consider this behavior to be idolatry.

Veneration is located on top of the skull, between Firmness and Benevolence.

 Byzantines.net - Veneration of Icons in the Byzantine Rite
Unfortunately, due to the iconoclasm (violent opposition against the veneration of icons and sacred objects) of the eighth and ninth centuries, almost all primitive icons were destroyed.
The Fathers explained that the veneration of icons, theologically, was based on the mystery of incarnation, since in the person of Jesus Christ we received revelation not only of the "Word of God" (Jn.
We venerate Your sacred image, O gracious Lord, and we beg forgiveness of our sins, O Christ our God; for in Your body You voluntarily deigned to ascend the cross, to deliver from the bondage of enemy those whom You have created.

 Veneration of the Image
Christ demanded public veneration of the Image of Mercy, in churches, and not only in the private dwellings of the laity, priests or religious.
Given that Jesus desired that the Image be solemnly consecrated (blessed) and venerated by the faithful in church, and not beyond the enclosure, one can presume that He expects signs of veneration for this Image similar to the veneration given to other paintings in churches, chapels, and private homes.
Since this second function of the Image is often forgotten, and the veneration alone without deeds of mercy is not the Devotion required by Christ, worshipers of Mercy should conform to Christ's demand so that they let no day pass without performing at least one act of mercy: by deed, word, or prayer.

Veneration of the Saints: Solemn Doctrine or Ludicrous Heresy?
As most of you already know, veneration of the saints is an originally Catholic belief, and is severely rejected by most Protestants.

 Veneration - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Catholic theology also includes the term hyperdulia for the type of veneration specifically paid to Mary, mother of Jesus, in Catholic tradition.
In Protestantism, and other monotheistic religions such as Islam and Judaism, veneration is considered to amount to the heresy of idolatry, and the related practice of canonization amounts to the heresy of apotheosis.
Likewise, Islam also condemns any veneration of icons but in many Islamic traditions, such as in North Africa, have and continue to venerate deceased individuals who are recognized as saints.

 Exposition on the Catholic Christian History of Veneration of Images
is that since we cannot be convinced of any liberty for invoking the saints and paying religious veneration to them, we conceive that the argument lies strongly against giving relative veneration or religious respect to their images.
And for a further declaration of our sentiments upon this matter, we willingly acknowledge that the use of pictures in churches is not only lawful, but may be serviceable for representing the history of the saints, for refreshing the memory, and for warming the devotion of the people.
The iconoclastic objection and opposition to veneration of images is as silly as saying that a person raising their hands towards God in worship and praise during church is worshiping the ceiling.

 Ancestor worship - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (via CobWeb/3.1 planet03.csc.ncsu.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
Ancestor worship is a religious practice based on the belief that deceased family members have a continued existence, take an interest in the affairs of the world, and possess the ability to influence the fortune of the living.
While far from universal, ancestor worship or ancestor veneration occurs in societies with every degree of social, political, and technological complexity, and it remains an important component of various religious practices in modern times.
It is in that sense that the translation "ancestor veneration" may convey a more accurate sense of what practitioners, such as the Chinese and other Confucian-influenced societies, see themselves as doing.
