Catechism of the Catholic Church Section 3:21 – Him only shall you serve (2093-2109) by Fr Guy de Gaynesford

2CCC Artwork for podcast Section 3093-2109. Having considered the three theological virtues of faith, hope and charity in the light of the first commandment, Fr Guy goes on to look at what we owe to God: ‘Charity leads us to render to God what we as creatures owe him in all justice’ (2095). The virtue of religion disposes us to adoration, prayer and sacrifice, leading us to offer our very selves to God as St Paul encourages us to do: ‘Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship’ (Romans 1:12).
