Malta Minute with the Catechism: The First Commandment

  • Program #: 189
  • Description: What does God ask of us through the First Commandment? The Catholic Catechism, paragraph 2084, tells us that God's first call and just demand is that man accept Him and love Him. "You shall worship the Lord your God and Him alone shall you serve." God first revealed his glory to Israel. The truth of man and man's vocation is linked to this revelation of God. What is man's vocation? It is to make God manifest by acting in conformity with the fact that man has been made in the image and likeness of God. The source of our moral life is faith in God. St. Paul writes that the principle and explanation of all moral deviation is ignorance of God. This is Peggy Stanton and this has been the Order of Malta's Minute with the Catechism.
