When you're teaching about the sacrament of Penance, you can supplement catechism class with Ten Commandments coloring pages. The pictures can really help children remember Who we sin against, and help them make the associations necessary to remember the Commandments all their lives.

A great symbol of the Catholic Ten Commandments is the two stone tablets with the first three Commandments on the first one and the other seven on the other.

Why?

The first three Commandments are related to God and the other seven are related to His Creation, people first  and things last. 

Use the board to show the Commandments in this division, the three for God on the left and the other seven on people, ideas and goods on the right. Simply use Roman Numerals as symbols. We have the Ten Commandments on printable sheets in our First Communion worksheets and Confirmation worksheets if you would like worksheets on the Commandments.

List of the Ten Commandments

2. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
3. Remember thou keep holy the Lord‘s Day.
4. Honor thy father and thy mother.
5. Thou shall not kill.

The main part of any Catholic catechism is the Catholic Ten Commandments. The Catholic catechism is simple if you look at it this way:

  1. The Apostles' Creed tells us what to believe
  2. The Ten Commandments tells us what to do or what not to do.
  3. The Catholic sacraments and prayers help us both believe and do.

There is a hierarchy, too.

The lower the number, the more important the Commandment.

It is worse to break the First Commandment than it is to break the Fifth Commandment. It is worse to break the Fifth Commandment than it is to break the Seventh Commandment and so on. This is why abortion is a worse sin than socialism; abortion breaks the Fifth and the main principle of socialism breaks the Seventh and the Tenth, etc.

Basically the Commandments can be condensed into two. They all boil down to these:

  1. Love God.
  2. Love your neighbor as yourself. This is the Golden Rule.

Learning the Commandments, the Act of Contrition, and the other prayers is the best preparation for first Confession, too.
