Title: ON CONSCIENCE: TWO ESSAYS BY JOSEPH CARNDIANL RATZINGER
Description:
In these addresses, the Pope points out that there would be no moral norms at all if each person were able, with absolute certitude, to declare for himself what is morally right in every circumstance. What saves one from complete moral relativism are a number of factors necessary for morality: conscience, the shared experience of the community of which one is a part, reality itself, and, finally, what God has revealed of his will for us. Without these counterbalances to subjectivism, one faces the threat of a totalitarianism of the powerful arising from their own arbitrary decisions. 82 pages
