Catechism of the Day

The Ninth Commandment
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house.

What does this mean?
We should fear and love God,
that we may not craftily seek to get
our neighbor's inheritance or house,
nor obtain it by a show of right,

but help and be of service to him in keeping it.

Nonum Praeceptum
Non concupisces domum proximi tui.

Quae est huius praecepti sententia?
Debemus Deum timere et diligere,
ne hereditatem vel domum
proximi dolo malo captemus
et sub specie iuris et recti nostris facultatibus adiungamus,

sed potius eum iuvemus, ut suas fortunas retineat integras.
