Catechism of the Day

The Fourth Commandment
Thou shalt honor thy father and thy mother,
that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

What does this mean?
We should fear and love God,
that we may not despise our parents and masters, nor provoke them to anger,
but give them honor, serve and obey them,
and hold them in love and esteem.

Quartum Praeceptum
Honora patrem et matrem,
ut bene sit tibi et sis longaevus super terram.

Quae est huius praecepti sententia?
Debemus Deum timere et diligere,
ne parentes et dominos nostros contemnamus neque ad iram commoveamus,
sed honore afficiamus, illis serviamus, morem geramus,
amore eos prosequamur et magni faciamus.
