Product Description

This book outlines the path to happiness using the knowledge of Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas. It demonstrates how the science of faith and human reason interact and how the truth will set you free both now and in the afterlife.

For anyone seeking a thorough introduction to the core ideas of Catholic moral teaching, this book is priceless. Fr. Brian Thomas Becket Mullady explains how the Church is called to help shape culture rather than the other way around in these stirring pages. He describes a wide range of realities, including the ultimate goal of man, the function of the will, conscience and responsibility, many categories of sin, virtues, and rules, and grace in the end.

By citing instances like the Church's beliefs on abortion and the death penalty, Fr. Mullady convincingly disproves relativism and clarifies how the Church's teachings are always consistent. He explains how the mind, will, and passions are related. He demonstrates how theology and moral teaching must promote inward formation in love, which the truth of the law wants to nurture, while also fostering a healthy regard for the law.

You will learn how, in light of the Catholic Church's Catechism and St. John Paul II's Veritatis Splendor, real Catholic doctrine relates to texts like Karl Rahner's books and Pope Francis' Amoris Laetitia. You will examine how these ideas lead to errors in thinking from hedonism to voluntarism to rationalism, from Hume's sentimental morality to Kant's duty-driven morality.

Also, you will learn how to correctly comprehend how freedom and passions are formed and discover:

  •     The “feet” of the soul (and how to use them!)
  •     Two passions that aid in the attainment of a desired good
  •     Four qualities of actions subject to moral responsibility
  •     Aquinas’s six arguments about what satisfies our intellect
  •     The key truth denied in modern psychology that leads to immorality
  •     Four reasons why human destiny cannot exist in exterior goods
