Pop-Up Catechesis: The Sixth Commandment and Relationships

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

Take a moment to complete the following simple word analogies.

Hot is to cold as up is to ___________.

North is to south as east is to ___________.

Good is to bad as small is to ___________.

Those were easy! (The answers, of course, are down, west, and large.) Analogies are all about relationships between words. The Sixth Commandment, “You shall not commit adultery,” teaches us about relationships, not between words, but between people. Just as some words go together and cannot be separated, men and women are joined together in marriage, a relationship that must be respected. The Sixth Commandment teaches us to respect relationships and especially to protect the relationship between a man and a woman in marriage. In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we look more closely at the Sixth Commandment.
