In 1991 Joseph Card. Ratzinger gave a talk to American Bishops called “Conscience and Truth”. This talk is useful today, especially in the context of two major controversies that are going on as I write, namely, the defense of the proper definition of marriage and, of course, the attacks on the consciences of Catholics and others by the Obama Administration, which is trying to undermine the our first liberties.
The talk is longish, so I have broken it into three parts. PODCAzT 130 included my preliminary comments and Part 1 of the talk, “A Conversation On The Erroneous Conscience And First Inferences”.In this PODCAzT we have Part 2: “Newman and Socrates: Guides to Conscience”.
