person. This includes being selfless instead of being selfish. Jesus wants us to treat others
with kindness, to help those in need and to respect each person and their belongings. Loving
and helping others brings us joy. (CCC 357, 225, 1766, 2447, 2262) 4. God gave Moses the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20: -17). The Ten Commandments are for

in this life and for eternity. The Holy Spirit strengthens us to be faithful to God's love by
living according to the Commandments.

a) Love God with all your heart.
b) Love your neighbor as yourself. 7. We love God our Heavenly Father by praying to Him. We show Him our love by going
to Mass every Sunday. At Church we worship the Blessed Trinity with the all the
