    Abstract

    Forms of worship or devotion outside the Eucharistic Liturgy of the Catholic Church exist and their context and purpose is sometimes misunderstood. These forms of worship take on different expressions depending upon person, culture, place and time. Such forms of worship are open to adaptation and change depending upon their context and the need and purpose they perform.
    It will be the purpose of this paper to place these forms of worship, popularly called piety or devotions, into a proper context in relation to the Eucharistic Liturgy of the Catholic Church and examine their proper place and purpose in the life of the human person and in the ecclesial setting of the Church.
