The Fifth and Sixth Commandments
The aim of this lesson is for your children to learn that the Fifth Commandment tells us to acknowledge all life as a God-given gift. Keeping the Fifth Commandment not only means respecting physical life, but also the life of the soul, and safeguarding the dignity of all human persons. Your children will also learn that the Sixth Commandment requires us to be pure in the use of our sexuality. In creating man and woman in His image and likeness, God designed them to be a reflection of the intimate, free, and loving communion that is at the heart of the Trinity.
