The Ninth Commandment: Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife.
As Jesus said in Chapter 5 of Matthew, a man has committed adultery already if he has lusted after another. So while the Sixth Commandment deals with the actual physical acts of sexual immorality, the Ninth brings it into the heart. What goes on there is as important as what happens externally.
Listen in on this mini-episode of The Catholic Mama's Catechism Fridays, we explore the Ninth Commandment, why what happens within our hearts and minds matter and how to win the struggle against carnal lust.
