According to Exodus in the Old Testament,
God issued his own set of laws (the Ten Commandments) to Moses on Mount Sinai.
In Catholicism, the Ten Commandments are considered divine law because God himself revealed them. And because they were spelled out specifically with no room for ambiguity,
Prayer to Protect our Website
+ In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti, Amen
Sancte Michael Archángele,
defénde nos in prœlio;
contra nequítiam et insídias diáboli esto præsídium.
Imperet illi Deus, súpplices deprecámur;
tuque, Princeps militiae cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malignos,
qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in mundo,
divina virtúte in inférnum detrúde.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host – by the Divine Power of God –
cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls
We have added Latin texts to each commandment. The reason is quite simple, it is the language of the Church. It gives us the foundation of the meaning of the commandment, instead of a translated watered down version.
The core chapters concerning the Ten Commandments are Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5. We have read Vulgate and used several modern languages to view and understand texts.
We decided to add the Latin version of the Our Father, Pater noster, to our website. It may sound strange in the sense that this website focuses on the Ten Commandments, hence our name.
But, we realised that if we are to tell the story we want to tell, we ought to link Our Father and to our website.
We cooperate with a network of other websites such as The Society of the Holy Rosary, PrayRosary.info, Commander Cross Rosary and StationsoftheCross.org and all these groups may link to our works.
There are so many websites presenting the Our Father in many languages and we want to give our voice to the Truth.
We are using public domain illustrations to enhance the texts, unless other stated.
The texts arrives from several sources such as; The Bible or the Catechism of the Catholic Church (ccc).
