Catechism of the Day

The Eighth Commandment
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

What does this mean?
We should fear and love God,
that we may not deceitfully belie, betray, slander,
nor defame our neighbor,

but defend him, speak well of him,
and put the best construction on everything.

Octavum Praeceptum
Non loqueris contra proximum tuum falsum testimonium.

Quae est huius praecepti sententia?
Debemus Deum timere et diligere,
ne proximum falsis mendaciis involvamus, prodamus,
traducamus aut infamia aliqua afficiamus,

sed illum excusemus, bene de eo sentiamus et loquamur
et omnia in meliorem partem accipiamus et interpretemur.
