as recorded in Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Jeremiah 29:8 All forms of divination are to be rejected such as: recourse to Satan or demons,
conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to “unveil” the future
such as consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, ouiji boards, etc. (See
CCC 2115-2117). Exodus 20:7 The Second Commandment: God’s name is Holy. You shall not use God’s
name in vain.
“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your Name in all the earth.”
Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount, calling us to perfection: “You
have heard that it was said to the men of old, ‘You shall not swear
falsely…But I say to you, Do not swear at all.’” Psalm 8:1
Matthew 5:33-34 Exodus 20:8-11
Genesis 2:3 The Third Commandment: Remember to keep God’s day holy.
“So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it He rested
from all the work He had done in creation.” God did not need to rest but He knows that we need rest to rest and be strengthened by
receiving Him in Holy Communion each Sunday (CCC 2185).
Since we are followers of Jesus, Sunday is our day of prayer dedicated to God and rest from any
unnecessary work. Above all, we must actively participate in the Mass on Sunday (or Saturday
evening) and other Holy Days.

Colossians 2:20 The Fourth Commandment: Honor your father and mother.
“Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.”
We are to love our parents, to respect our parents and to obey our parents. Exodus 20:13 The Fifth Commandment: You shall not kill.
We are to take care of our body and our soul and respect and honor the
body and soul of others. We are to treat others with kindness, no matter
what they look like, what they wear etc.
We can deeply hurt someone through gossip, ignoring him/her or making
fun of him/her. These things strike at a person’s dignity. Exodus 20:14 The Sixth Commandment: You shall not commit adultery. The Sixth and Ninth Commandments forbid unfaithfulness in marriage.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit” -God dwells within you.
We are to treat each person as a beloved child of God: with complete respect
for his/her dignity.
The Lord wants us to enjoy good things. We are to listen to, read and watch things that are
good and pure, things that do not make us feel uncomfortable because the Ten Commandments
are being violated. It is helpful to ask: Would Jesus watch this program or read this book?
