Spirituality: Conscience: The People of God answer to a higher norm. Vatican II

Deep within their consciences, men and women discover a law that they have not laid upon themselves but which they must obey. Its voice, ever calling them to love and to do what is good and to avoid what is evil, tells them inwardly at the right moment: do this, shun that. For they have in their hearts a law inscribed by God. Their dignity lies in observing this law, and by it they will be judged…. By conscience, that law is made know in a wonderful way that is fulfilled in love for God and for one’s neighbor. Through loyalty to conscience, Christians are joined to others in the search for truth and for the right solution to so many moral problems that arise both in the lives of individuals and in social relationships.
