January 17th, 2018 – St. Anthony

Today’s discussion made me think of the “memory verse” of my youth: “I was glad when they said unto me Let us go into the house of the Lord.” – Psalm 122:1

Here is what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says about:

The Third Commandment

The Sabbath Day

The Lord’s Day

All About Sin

And this about St. Anthony

      This seems to be the only instance of the word “tithe” in the Catechism:

      2449 Beginning with the Old Testament, all kinds of juridical measures (the jubilee year of forgiveness of debts, prohibition of loans at interest and the keeping of collateral, the obligation to tithe, the daily payment of the day-laborer, the right to glean vines and fields) answer the exhortation of Deuteronomy: “For the poor will never cease out of the land; therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor in the land.'”248 Jesus makes these words his own: “The poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me.”249 In so doing he does not soften the vehemence of former oracles against “buying the poor for silver and the needy for a pair of sandals . . .,” but invites us to recognize his own presence in the poor who are his brethren:250
