Precepts of the Church, The
Fr. Lawrence G. Lovasic, SVD
Often ignored in our day, the Precepts of the Church are still in full effect. We ignore them at peril to our immortal souls. This book relates the way Jesus gave authority to his Church to establish such rules and goes on to explain, in language children can understand, the Seven Precepts of the Church: the necessity to attend Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation; to receive Holy Communion frequently and the Sacrament of Penance regularly; to study Catholic teaching to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation; to observe the marriage laws of the Church; to support the Church; to do penance, abstaining from meat and fasting on certain days; to join the missionary spirit and apostolate of the Church.
This is an excellent teaching tool for children.
