Words from the Catechism

http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/p3s2c2a6.htm

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us what God intends us to do and to follow his plan for .”God created man in his own image . . . male and female he created them, Be fruitful and multiply. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God. Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created.” Jesus came to earth and when he spoke the Sermon on the Mount he clarified the sixth commandment. ” You shall not commit adultery” this not only means don’t have sex with someone who is married but don’t live your life with lust. Lust is one of the seven deadly sins and it tempts us everywhere we go. Sex is on every billboard and tv station, it’s mentioned in every song and shown in every movie. We must strive to live life with chastity, because of original sin we will always struggle but God expects us to overcome it and be faithful. We can’t always be good and we do fail but God gives us the sacrament of confession to allow us to confess our wrong doings and be forgiven if we are truly sorry. God is all loving and merciful, we must acknowledge his power and love and respect him for it. The Catechism is a guide book on the church’s teaches and we should look to it for help and understanding.
