The Catechism number of the month is all about obedience. It is number #2217 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church: As long as a child lives at home with his parents, the child should obey his parents in all that they ask of him when it is for his good or that of the family. As they grow up, children should continue to respect their parents. They should anticipate their wishes, willingly seek their advice, and accept their just admonitions. Obedience toward parents ceases with the emancipation of the children; not so respect, which is always owed to them.
