Catechism of the Day

The Second Commandment
Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord, thy God, in vain.

What does this mean?
We should fear and love God,
that we may not curse, swear, use witchcraft,
lie, or deceive by His Name,

but call upon it in every trouble,
pray, praise, and give thanks.

Secundum Praeceptum
Non assumes nomen Domini Dei tui in vanum.

Quae est huius praecepti sententia?
Debemus Deum timere et diligere,
ne per nomen eius imprecemur, iuremus, incantemus,
mentiamur aut dolis fallamus,

sed in omni necesssitate illud invocemus,
adoremus et cum gratiarum actione laudemus.
