The Objective Norm of
      Morality:

       LAW
St. Thomas Aquinas: LAW is
 A decree or ordinance of reason
 Directed towards the common
 good
 Promulgated by competent
 authority, i.e. one who has the care
 of the community.
ORDINANCE or Decree
  Obligatory force & not merely as
  recommendation or suggestion.

ORDINANCE of REASON

•It must be based on the insights of reason
          into what is truly good.
Common Good:
 Laws can only be enacted for the common
 good & not for the private good of a few
 citizens.
PROMULGATION:
 The official publication of a LAW so that
 it can come to the knowledge of the
 subjects.
 Necessary in order that a law becomes
 obligatory.
 Laws can only be enacted by those in
 charge of the community as a legitimate
 authority.
Relevance or Importance of
Moral Norms / LAWS: (CFC)
1. Provide the objective criteria for our own
    conscience to judge what is morally good
    or evil.
2. Help our moral development, especially in
    the formation of our conscience.
3. Offer the needed moral stability in our lives.
4. Challenge us to stretch for an ideal beyond
    our limited experience, & correct our
    moral misconceptions in the process.
KINDS or Classes of LAW:
 ETERNAL LAW
 NATURAL LAW
 HUMAN LAW
 DIVINE LAW
ETERNAL LAW
It is the plan of God in creating the universe
& in assigning to each creature their
specific nature.
The universal law whereby God directs &
governs the universe & the ways of human
community according to his plan of wisdom
& love.
Eternal Law….
 A type of DIVINE WISDOM

 The Creator, therefore, has in Himself the
 “type” of what creatures are to do to attain
 their END & PURPOSE.
NATURAL LAW
I.   PHYSICAL LAWS & their properties -
     The nature of all created things which is
     the principle of their movements &
     actions.
II. MORAL ORDER – the universal natural
     moral laws built into human beings by God
     when creating them & are made accessible
     to the light of reason (discern what is good
     & what is evil).
     - It binds man to seek the good fitting his
     rational nature.
NATURAL Moral LAW:
 It is the eternal law as knowable by sound
 human reason without the aid of
 supernatural revelation.
 The basic precept:
            “DO GOOD, AVOID EVIL.”
Natural Moral Law is
  recognized by all men
 regardless of creed, race,
   culture, or historical
      circumstances.
•Morality written in man’s heart.
•Law of reason
•Compelling the individual to be true to
his nature as rational human being.
•Pagpapakatao
“Sapagkat ako’y tao lamang…(?)”
Natural Moral Law – is the
human participation in God’s
wisdom.

Man knows naturally, by the light
of his understanding, that there
are some things evil in
themselves, & some things which
are necessarily good.

the Natural Law:
