20 Feb 23 – Morality

Today’s Topics:

1) The definition of Morality is the set of principles a person develops, concerning the
distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior.  For Catholics, it is living a virtuous life. Throughout the show Greg and Mark speak about the death of their San Gabriel Regional Bishop David O’Connell


2) Sadly, because of the Fall, we also suffer the impact of Original Sin, which darkens our minds, weakens our wills, and inclines us to sin. Baptism delivers us from Original Sin but not from its effects— especially the inclination to sin, concupiscence,

3) Deuteronomy 30:15-16 proclaims, “See, I have today set before you life and good, death and evil. If you obey the commandments of the LORD, your God, which I am giving you today, loving the LORD, your God, and walking in his ways, and keeping his commandments, statutes and ordinances, you will live and grow numerous, and the LORD, your God, will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.”

4) An important foundation of Christian morality is the understanding of moral acts. Every moral act consists of three elements: the objective act (what we do), the subjective goal or intention (why we do the act), and the concrete situation or circumstances in which we perform the act (where, when, how, with whom, the consequences, etc.).
