Your Life in Christ: Foundations of Catholic Morality focuses on the essential message of Christ's moral teaching, the importance of love of God and neighbor. The text covers the major points from the "Life in Christ" section of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, pulling together these elements by developing nine essential steps for living a Christian moral life in the Catholic tradition.

  6. Forming the conscience and strengthening resistance to peer pressure
  7. Repenting and forgiving others
  8. Thanking God for life by loving God above all else
  9. Loving yourself
  10. Loving your neighbors
