  • 2. • The Second Commandment: You shall not take the name of the Lord, your God, in vain
  • 3. • The second commandment demands respect for the Lord’s name • In scripture, the name of God was so great that the Israelites never spoke it aloud • God wanted people to heal and care for each other through the power of His name • We must not introduce the name of God into speech unless it is to bless, praise, or glorify
  • 4. * There is no “Plan B” – They are not called the Ten Suggestions! 
  • 5. • We are called to use God’s divine name with reverence and to speak to and about others with respect for their human dignity.
  • 6. • A vow is a sacred promise; a promise to God made freely • Honoring a vow is proper use of God’s name

  • 9. • Your words reflect who you are • Using language that is crude, disrespectful, or ignorant shows that type of personality • Christians are called to honor God not only through their deeds, but in their words. • Your words should: – Praise and glorify God – Encourage others and speak positively – Respect God, Respect others, Respect yourself!
  • 10. • The Third Commandment Remember to keep holy the Lord’s Day
  • 11. • Sunday is the Lord’s Day • The Israelites were by this commandment to set aside a day for rest. • They called this day the Sabbath because Sabbath means rest • The third commandment declares the Sabbath a day for honoring God and for doing good
  • 12. • The early Christians moved the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday to connect it with the day of Jesus’ Resurrection • On Sunday, we observe the Lord’s Day by celebrating Eucharist • Sunday is the foremost holy day of obligation
  • 13. • Every Sunday is a celebration of Easter, recalling the Paschal Mystery – the passion, death, and Resurrection of Jesus.
  • 14. • Sunday is the foundation of the Liturgical Year, the Church’s cycle of seasons and holy days • The seasons of the Liturgical Year are: Advent, Christmas, (OT), Lent Easter, and Ordinary Time
  • 15. • Holy days of obligation are days that commemorate special people of events. • Catholics are required to participate in Mass on these days
