3, 4, 5 Grade Examination of Conscience-2

Jul 6, 2019


Welcome to Behind the Veil Christian Ministries' Examination of Conscience specifically designed for students in grades 3, 4, and 5! We understand the importance of moral guidance at a young age. Our team at St. Michael Church has meticulously crafted this comprehensive examination to foster introspection, encourage personal growth, and promote a deeper understanding of Christ's teachings.

Understanding the Examination of Conscience

The Examination of Conscience serves as a personal reflection on our thoughts, words, and actions in relation to God's commandments. It allows us to identify areas where we may have fallen short, seek forgiveness, and resolve to improve. This particular examination is tailored to the unique experiences and challenges faced by students in grades 3, 4, and 5.

The First Commandment

In this section, we delve into the First Commandment which states, "I am the Lord your God; you shall not have strange gods before me." It prompts us to reflect on our relationship with God and how we prioritize Him in our lives. As students, it's important to consider our attendance at church, active participation in religious activities, and our commitment to prayer.

Attendance at Church

Attending church regularly and actively participating in worship ceremonies help us strengthen our connection with God. Reflect upon the times when you may have missed Mass or did not fully engage during the service. How can you prioritize church attendance in the future?


Prayer is a powerful tool that allows us to communicate with God. Think about the times when you may have neglected to pray or said rushed prayers without sincere intentions. How can you make prayer a more consistent and meaningful part of your daily routine?

The Second Commandment

The Second Commandment teaches us to honor God's name and not to misuse it. Let's reflect on our speech and actions in relation to this commandment. Have we used God's name in vain, told lies, or engaged in gossip that dishonors others? As young individuals seeking to grow in faith, we must strive to promote love, kindness, and respect through our words and actions.

The Third Commandment

The Third Commandment reminds us to keep the Lord's Day holy. It encourages us to set aside time for rest, worship, and spending quality time with God and loved ones. Reflect upon your observance of the Sabbath. Have you treated Sundays as a day set apart for spiritual growth and nurturing your relationship with God? Consider ways to honor this commandment more consciously.

The Fourth Commandment

In this section, we explore the importance of honoring our parents and guardians as outlined in the Fourth Commandment. Reflect on your relationship with your parents or guardians. Have you shown them the respect, obedience, and gratitude they deserve? How can you strengthen these relationships and live out this commandment more fully?

The Fifth Commandment

The Fifth Commandment prohibits killing, but it also teaches us to respect the dignity and sanctity of every human life. Reflect on instances where you may have participated in bullying, hurt someone with unkind words, or failed to stand up against injustice. How can you promote love, forgiveness, and reconciliation in your daily interactions?


The 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade Examination of Conscience provides a comprehensive framework for self-reflection and moral growth. By following these guidelines and taking time to examine our thoughts, words, and actions, we can develop a deeper understanding of our faith and cultivate a stronger relationship with God.
