Lent through Easter

The Three Pillars of Lent


A BRIEF EXAMINATION OF CONSCIENCE BASED ON THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

I am the Lord you God: You shall not have strange Gods before me.

Have I treated people, things or events, as more important than God?

You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.

Have my words, actively or passively, put down God, the Church, or people?

Remember to keep holy the Lord’s Day.

Do I go to Mass every Sunday (or Saturday vigil) and on Holy Days of Obligation?, Do I avoid, when possible, work that that impeded worship to God, joy for the Lord’s Day, and proper relaxation of mind and body ? Do I look for ways to spend time with family or in service on Sunday?

Honor your father and your mother

Do I show my parents due respect? Do I seek to maintain good communication with my parents where possible? Do I criticize them for lacking skills I think they should have?

You shall not kill

Have I harmed another through physical, verbal or emotional means, including gossip or manipulation of any kind?

You shall not commit adultery

Have I respected the physical and sexual dignity of others and of myself?

You shall not steal

Have I taken or wasted time or resources that belonged to another?

You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor

Have I gossiped, told lies, or embellished stories at the expense of another?

You shall not covet your neighbor’s spouse

Have I honored my spouse with my full affection and exclusive love?

You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods

Am I content with my own means and needs, or do I compare myself to others unnecessarily?
