The Fourth Commandment: Strengthen Your Family (CCC 2196–2257)


Honour Your Father and your Mother 

The Fourth Commandment, ‘Honour your father and your mother’, focuses on family life in all its dimensions – the duties and responsibilities of parents and children. The Sacrament of Marriage creates and sustains the Christian family so that it truly reflects the Gospel lived out in the ordinary daily circumstances of life. The Holy Trinity as a loving communion of divine persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit –and the Holy Family of Nazareth with Jesus, Mary and Joseph – are models for every Christian family.
