But this is only the beginning of freedom, not perfect freedom Jesus’ appeal to the “beginning” dismays the disciples, who remark: While such norms might somehow be useful for a correct assessment of the situation, they cannot replace the individual personal decision on how to act in particular cases.

These words of Jesus reveal the particular dynamic of freedom’s growth towards maturity, and at the same time they bear witness to the fundamental relationship between freedom and divine law.

The universality of the law and its obligation are acknowledged, not suppressed, once reason has established the law’s application in concrete present circumstances. Finally, it is always possible that man, as the result of coercion or other circumstances, can be hindered from doing certain good actions; but he can never be hindered from not doing certain actions, especially if he is prepared to die rather than to do evil.

Love of neighbour would mean above all and even exclusively respect for his freedom to make his own decisions. What is the way to attaining true happiness? Jesus splenvor that the commandments must not be understood as a minimum limit not to be gone beyond, but rather as a path involving a moral and spiritual journey towards perfection, at the heart of which is love cf.

The individual conscience is accorded the status of a supreme tribunal of moral judgment which hands down categorical and infallible decisions about good and evil. The modern concern for the claims of autonomy ecniclica not failed to exercise an influence also in the sphere of Catholic moral theology.

Indeed, it considers verittis issue central, for there can be no morality without freedom: The statement that “There is only one who is good” thus brings us back to the “first tablet” of the commandments, which calls us to acknowledge God as the one Lord of all and to worship him alone for his infinite holiness cf.

In order to make this “encounter” with Christ possible, God willed his Church. cartaa

Veritatis Splendor (6 August ) | John Paul II

For this reason the Lord promised his disciples the Holy Spirit, who would “bring to their remembrance” and teach them to understand his commandments cf. This participation of the eternal law in the rational creature is called natural law”. Consequently one must acknowledge in the freedom of the human person the image and the veeitatis of God, who is present in all cf. Jesus, as a patient and sensitive teacher, answers the young man by taking him, as it were, by the hand, and leading him step by step to the full truth.

Conscience is the only witness, since encicluca takes place in the heart of the person is hidden from the eyes of everyone outside.

The gift of the Decalogue was a promise and sign of the New Covenant, in which the law would be written in a new and definitive way upon the human heart cf. While the latter has certainly never attempted to set human freedom against the divine law or to question the existence of an ultimate religious foundation for moral norms, it has, nonetheless, been led to undertake a profound rethinking about the role encicllca reason and of faith in identifying moral norms with reference to specific “innerworldly” kinds of behaviour involving oneself, others and the material world.

And this is precisely the case when an act of faith — in the sense of a fundamental option — becomes separated from the choice of particular acts, as in the tendencies mentioned above. Jesus refers him to the two commandments of love of God and love of neighbour cf.

In fact, a new situation has come about within the Christian community itself, which has experienced the spread of numerous doubts and objections of a human and psychological, social and cultural, religious and even properly theological nature, with regard to the Church’s moral teachings.

The term “conflicting thoughts” clarifies the precise nature of conscience: Jesus himself is the living “fulfilment” of the Law inasmuch as he fulfils its authentic meaning by the total gift of himself: Certainly there is a need to seek out and to discover the most adequate formulation for universal and permanent moral norms in the light of different cultural contexts, a formulation most capable of ceaselessly expressing their historical relevance, of making them understood and of authentically interpreting their truth.

The Church, and particularly the Bishops, to whom Jesus Christ primarily entrusted the ministry of teaching, are deeply appreciative of this work, and encourage theologians to continue their efforts, inspired by that profound and authentic “fear of the Lord, which is the beginning of wisdom” cf.

Man achieves such dignity when he frees himself from all subservience to his feelings, and in a free choice of the good, pursues his own end by effectively and assiduously marshalling the appropriate means”. If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments” Mt Consequently, “the man who wishes to understand himself thoroughly — and not just in accordance with immediate, partial, often superficial, and even illusory standards and measures of his being — must with his unrest, uncertainty and even his weakness and sinfulness, with his life and death, draw near to Christ.

If this profound process takes place within him, he then bears fruit not only of adoration of God but also of deeper wonder at himself”. By forbidding man to “eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”, God makes it clear that man does not originally possess such “knowledge” as something properly his own, but only participates in it by the light of natural reason and of Divine Revelation, which manifest to him the requirements and the promptings of eternal wisdom.

The dignity of this rational forum and the authority of its voice and judgments derive from the truth about moral good and evil, which it is called to listen to and to express. Rather, they speak of basic attitudes and dispositions in life and therefore they do not coincide exactly with the commandments.

God’s plan poses no threat to man’s genuine freedom; on the contrary, the acceptance of God’s plan is the only way to affirm that freedom. What the young man now perhaps only dimly perceives will in the end be rnciclica revealed by Jesus himself in the invitation: The gift does not lessen but reinforces the moral demands of love: Jesus brings God’s commandments to fulfilment, particularly the commandment of love of neighbour, by interiorizing their demands and by bringing out their fullest meaning.

No one can fail to see that such an interpretation of the autonomy of human reason involves positions incompatible with Catholic teaching.

Not only the rich man but the disciples themselves are taken aback by Jesus’ call to discipleship, the demands of which transcend human aspirations and abilities: It is attained in its perfection only after death, but in faith it is even now a light of truth, a source of meaning for life, an inchoate share in the full following of Christ. Like the natural law itself and all practical knowledge, the judgment of conscience also has an imperative character: Furthermore, it would have to take into consideration the behavioural models and the meanings which the latter acquire in any given culture.

Saint Augustine, after speaking of the observance of the commandments as being a kind of incipient, imperfect freedom, goes on to say:
