Catholic Moral Teachings : What does Vatican II state?
'Vatican II, brought to the fore front the issue of conscience and its vital role in our search for truth. The document on the Church in the Modern World #16 stated clearly the important role of conscience in the life of the Christian. ...'Deep within their consciences men and women discover a law which they have not laid upon themselves and which they must obey. Its voice, ever calling them to love and to do what is good and to avoid 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 rests in observing this law, and by it they will be judged. Their conscience is people's most secret core, and their sanctuary. There they are alone with God whose voice echoes in their depths. By conscience, in a wonderful way, that law is made known which is fulfilled in the love of God and of one's neighbor.'
