The Revealed Law Many truths contained in natural law were revealed by God in the Law He gave to the Israelites. During the Exodus, on Mount Sinai. God gave Moses stone tablets on which were written ten laws. These laws made it clear how to live as His people. These Ten Commandments are also called the Decalogue [DEK-uh-log], which means “ten words.” Then God and the people of Israel made a covenant that Israel would be God’s people, and He would be their only God. The people declared, “We will do everything that the Lord has told us” (cf. Ex 24:3) The commandments are not just for the Israelites, but for us too. When a man asked Jesus how to inherit eternal life, Jesus told him to keep the commandments. These laws tell us how to love. The first three explain how to love God, and the other seven are about loving others.
Origin of Divine Mercy Sunday
Saint Faustina: Mankind’s need for the message of Divine Mercy took on dire urgency in the 20th Century, when civilization began to experience an “eclipse of the sense of God” and, therefore to lose the understanding of the sanctity and inherent dignity of human life. In the 1930s, Jesus chose a humble Polish nun, St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, to receive private revelations concerning Divine Mercy that were recorded in her Diary, St. John Paul explains: This was precisely the time when those ideologies of evil, Nazism and communism, were taking shape. Sister Faustina became the herald of the one message capable of off -setting the evil of those ideologies, that fact that God is mercy—the truth of the merciful Christ. And for this reason, when I was called to the See of Peter, I felt impelled to pass on those experiences of a fellow Pole that deserve a place in the treasure of the universal Church. —Pope Saint John Paul II, Memory and Identity (2005)
Catechism God’s laws let us know the acts that lead to eternal happiness and those acts that turn us away from Him and His love. (cf. no. 1950)

The traditional cross is the form used in our images of the crucifixion of Christ. It is called the Latin cross. There are other Christian styles of the cross: the Andrew cross is shaped like the letter X, the form of cross in which Saint Andrew was martyred; Anthony cross, also called the Tau cross, shaped like the letter T, was actually the historical form used by Romans for crucifixion (not the Latin cross). The Celtic cross, also known as the Irish cross, is basically a Latin cross with a circle. The Greek cross has arms of the same length. The Jerusalem cross, also known as the Crusaders’ cross, has four smaller crosses—representing four evangelists—inserted into the larger cross. The Orthodox cross has two more crossbeams than the Latin cross (three crossbeams in all). There are many other forms of Christian crosses.
