306 Christian Morality

(English)

306. Christian Morality teaches us that the moral life is not reduced to a series of prohibitive principles regarding certain kind of life style.  It is an ongoing discovery of how the Spirit lives within us and how the life of the Church nourishes human will to make the right choice regarding our behavior, our way of living, our administration of goods, human care, the promotion of life, and the well-being of all God’s children.  Although these issues seem to be a personal matter, the decisions we make about them have social implications of which we need to be aware
