From what I have read in the history of Commandments of the Church attending Sunday Mass and the holy days of obligation is a way of showing and paying respects to God.  Confessing your sins to God is a way to get some weight of your shoulder and a version of closure, by confessing your sins it reassures you the God loves you no matter what you’ve done.  By celebrating the sacrament of the Eucharist; Christians get to show their love and appreciation for God.  Observing the days of fasting and abstinence reminds us that Christian life requires a mortal sin, Spiritual focus, Self- discipline, Imitation of Christ, and performing penance.  Providing the needs of the Church reminds us that Christian life requires a commitment to prayer and active.


  1. You shall attend Mass on Sundays and on holy days of obligation and rest from servile labor.
    We must “sanctify the day commemorating the Resurrection of the Lord” (Sunday), as well as the principal feast days, known as Catholic holy days of obligation. This requires attending Mass, “and by resting from those works and activities which could impede such a sanctification of these days.”
  2. You shall confess your sins at least once a year.
    We must prepare for the Eucharist by means of the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession). This sacrament “continues Baptism’s work of conversion and forgiveness.”
  3. You shall receive the sacrament of the Eucharist at least during the Easter season.
    This “guarantees as a minimum the reception of the Lord’s Body and Blood in connection with the Paschal feasts, the origin and center of the Christian liturgy.”
  4. You shall observe the days of fasting and abstinence established by the Church.
    “The fourth precept ensures the times of ascesis and penance which prepare us for the liturgical feasts and help us acquire mastery over our instincts and freedom of heart.” See below for more about fasting & abstinence.
  5. You shall help to provide for the needs of the Church.
    “The fifth precept means that the faithful are obliged to assist with the material needs of the Church, each according to his own ability.”


I did the last survey on Who am I in my blueprint.  The questions were a little difficult and strange but I did it.   Once I finally finished the survey I got my results back and they were interesting.  My top motivation factor was Achievement!  Achievement means a thing done successfully, typically by effort, courage, or skill.  My Primary motivation factor was Achievement: 1-find something to be accomplished, 2- Successful completion.  My Secondary motivation factor was Independence: 1- not manipulated/controlled-think/act for self, 2- not subject-autonomous/free.  The additional motivation factors that were given to me were Support- I need a place that supports me and i can support as well, and Relationships- I value kind, sincere, and cooperative places where I can be supported and support others.  


I took a survey on my blueprint and it was for Knowledge.  I got Physical Education which I think is impossible but it is what it is.  My results were 94% physical education and 94% social science.  Physical Education courses help you understand and appreciate a healthy and active lifestyle. Topics may include: Sports, Wellness and Health Sciences.  Social Science courses help you have a better understanding of the society you live in and aspects of other societies around the world. Topics may include: History, Geography, Law and Politics.  This cluster involves the action of planning, managing, promoting and selling products or services such as marketing research and advertising. Different jobs can include marketing management, professional sales, communications and research.


I took a survey on Interests and once i was finished I got The Pioneer.  If an idea has been around for a while a Pioneer can do something new. Their need for self-expression and their active imaginations are fuelled by a desire to explore, study and understand whatever interests them. The Pioneer is drawn to science and logic but prefers an unstructured environment so they can be spontaneous and use their creativity. They like to work independently and may have difficulty explaining their thought process to people.  My interest traits are Artistic 67% and Investigative 58%.  Artistic people require self-expression, creativity and can work without following clear rules. These people usually require an environment where flexibility, variety and change are expected.  Investigative people involve working with theories, concepts, information, and ideas. Curiosity, reasoning, logic, research, analysis, and science are some examples in Investigative people.
