Catechism of the Day

The Seventh Commandment
Thou shalt not steal.

What does this mean?
We should fear and love God,
that we may not take our neighbor’s money or goods,
nor get them by false ware or dealing,
but help him to improve and protect
his property and business.

Septimum Praeceptum
Non furtum facies.

Quae est huius praecepti sententia?
Debemus Deum timere et diligere,
ne proximo pecuniam aut bona auferamus,
neque falsis mercibus aut impostura ad nos pertrahamus,
sed demus operam, ut illius opes conserventrur,
et eius conditio melior reddatur.
