How Natural Law functions

according to Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274)

St Thomas Aquinas

Natural Law is not a set of detailed prescriptions. Natural Law is the whole process by which a human being uses his intelligence [conscience] to act in a morally correct manner.This diagram is explained very well in the essay by Dr Columba Ryan OP:

“The Traditional Concept of Natural Law: An Interpretation.”
