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.
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.
The Second Commandment is: "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain."
Every knee shall bend at the Holy Name of Jesus.
See our Holy Family and religious:
The Sixth Commandment is "Thou shalt not commit adultery."
Teach about Mary Magdalene becoming a great saint after she practiced the virtue of purity.
The main part of any Catholic catechism is the Catholic Ten Commandments. The Catholic catechism is simple if you look at it this way:
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.
Learning the Commandments, the Act of Contrition, and the other prayers is the best preparation for first Confession, too.
