St. Thomas Aquinas

St. Thomas Aquinas says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to help you understand the importance of a well-formed conscience; that is to say, a conscience formed in Truth. Let us compare the conscience to an egg. The shell of the egg protects the egg itself, so we could say the shell of the conscience represents the Truth. If the egg shell cracks or becomes compromised, the contents of the egg leak out. So it is with the conscience. If the Truth is compromised, every thought, word and deed which arises from the conscience is compromised as well.”

“So you see, too, what the soul accepts as Truth must be based upon the reality of God's Law or else the conscience is compromised – the egg shell is cracked.”

“I give you all of this in such simplistic terms so as to avoid confusion which is so prevalent today.”
