EXAMINATION OF CONSCIENCE FOR YOUTH
I am the Lord your God: you shall not have strange Gods before me. Do I care more about friends and games than talking to God? Do I try to be like Jesus and the Saints.
You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain. Do I use God’s carelessly? Do I use the name of Jesus in anger?
Remember to keep holy the Lord’s Day. Did I attend Mass on Sunday? Have I remembered to pray daily?
Honor your father and mother. Do I obey my parents? Have I done my chores without complaining or being reminded? Have I been disrespectful to teachers?
You shall not kill. Do I get angry too easily and react in ways I regret? Do I hold grudges and try to get even with others? Am I caring to others, including those who seem different than me?
You shall not commit adultery. Do I show respect for my body and the bodies of others? Do I avoid harmful things like drugs, cigarettes and alcohol?
You shall not steal. Have I taken things that belongs to someone else? Have I used my money responsibly?
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour. Do I ever cheat at at games or in my school work? Have I lied? Do I gossip or talk behind peoples backs?
You shall not covet your neighbour’s wife? Am I jealous of other people’s friends or status? Is being popular more important to me than following God?
You shall not covet your neighbour’s goods. Have I been jealous of the things that my friends have? Have I nagged my parents into buying things I don’t really need? Am I generous with my time and possessions?
