True Obedience: The Mark of A Faithful Catholic Part A: Introduction

JMJ

I have not been idle during 'retirement' and I've managed to eek out enough time to write an article on obedience.  Obviously this is a continuation of the original series on obedience ( For a summary - please see the original post here).

As the article is quite long, I will be publishing the article in a series of posts over the next few weeks.

My intention was to deeply examine the thought of the Church and St. Thomas Aquinas on obedience.

I began with the Catechism of the Council of Trent and moved to question 104 of the second part of the second part of the Summa Theologica.

Short conclusions:

  • Don't dis obedience (pun intended)
  • Don't throw St. Thomas under the bus because of Pope Francis
