Maguire CoverThis book will guide you to link your innermost self with the Creator and help you discover your own sense of conscience.


theologian – historian – writer
Conscience: a cautionary tale? ad tuendam fidem presents an analysis of the inner nature of moral conscience in terms of Thomas Aquinas’ insights into the metaphysics of existence: in the process it indicates how and why inevitably, there must be a tension between the demands of personal conscience and any attempt by the Magisterium of the Church to present an “objective” statement of moral propositions applicable to every situation; an epilogue contains a commentary on Pope John Paul II’s most recent encyclical, Fides et Ratio.
