5 Commandments of the Church


1.You shall attend Mass on Sundays and on holy days of obligation.

2.You shall confess your sins at least once a year.

3.You shall receive the sacrament of the Eucharist at least once during the Easter season.

4.You shall observe the days of fasting and abstinence established by the Church.

5.You shall help to provide for the needs of the Church.

By my understanding the 5 commandments of the church are things that you should be doing even if they didn’t exist, its like you should already just know by being part of the Catholic Church those are things that you should do. I also feel that doing these things should just be a habit and they shouldn’t be something that you fear doing or feel like a task or a job when you do them. In my opinion I think that maybe the 5th one would be the most important one and that it “You shall help to provide for the needs of the Church.” because you have to be willing to sacrifice some things like food or even time for a community that you are apart.
