Chapter 34. The Tenth Commandment: Embrace Poverty of Spirit
You Shall Not Covet Your Neighbour’s Goods (CCC, nos 2534–2557)
The Tenth Commandment extends the meaning of the Seventh and Ninth Commandments as it urges poverty of spirit and generosity of heart. These virtues free us from envy, greed and excessive materialism. This commandment is yet another means by which Christians living in the midst of a consumerist and materialistic society become a countercultural witness in their imitation of Christ Jesus.
