Unformatted text preview: e 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 to rest and be strengthened by receiving Him
in Holy Communion each Sunday (CCC 2181-2185). 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.
Psalm 141 “Let my prayer arise before you, the lifting up of my hands like the
evening sacrifice.” Exodus 20:12 The Fourth Commandment: Honor your father and mother.
“Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.”
We are to respect, obey and have allegiance to the Catholic Church
as founded on earth by Jesus. It is Jesus who is the Head of His
Church. He is the One who has given the authority to the pope, as
our spiritual father, to rule the Church on His behalf.
“My son, take care of your father when he is old; grieve him not as
long as he lives.” Colossians 2:20
Matthew 16:13-20 Sirach 3:12 We are to love our parents, to respect our parents and to obey our parents.
Exodus 20:13 August 6th, 2009
Transfiguration of our Lord The Fifth Commandment: You shall not kill. Diocese of La Crosse Page 22 of 38 Grade 8
Matthew 8:12 “Do unto others whatever you would have them do to you.”
We must love ourselves. However, due to effects of original sin, we
don’t want to love others too little and ourselves too much.
1 John 3:15
“Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that
eternal life abides in no murderer’s heart.”
Life is a gift from God. We must respect the gift of life at all stages: from conception to
natural death. We cannot take the beginning and the end of life into our own hands.
Ephesians 4:31-32 “…Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as
God in Christ forgave you.”
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.
Matthew 5:21-22 Jesus said, “You have heard that it was said to the men of old, ‘You shall
not kill…But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother
shall be liable to judgment.”
We can deeply hurt someone through gossip, ignoring him/her or making fun of him/her. These
things strike at a person’s dignity.
The Sixth Commandment: You shall not commit adultery.
1 Corinthians 6:18-20 “Shun immorality (fornication). Every other sin which a man
commits is outside the body; but the immoral person sins against his
own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy
Spirit within you, which you have from God? You are not your
own; you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”
