Abdicating the Responsibility of Freedom
In Amoris Leatitia, the pope teaches:
"Natural law could not be presented as an already established set of rules that impose themselves a priori on the moral subject; rather, it is a source of objective inspiration for the deeply personal process of making decisions."
In other words, objective sources of Truth are inspirations we use to form our consciences, but God rules each man personally in their conscience.
For a long time, I wanted the Church to be my conscience for me, to tell me exactly how to vote, how to have sex, and how to use my money. I wanted the Catechism to be a moral handbook that addressed every single detail and decision.
But what I was doing was abdicating my responsibility to form my own conscience. I wasn’t taught how to have a living relationship with the Holy Spirit, to allow his voice to guide my life and decision. I was just a rule follower.
So when I came across a moral question that didn’t have a clear and objective answer from the Church, I turned to apologists and theologians to tell me what to do, treating their opinions as if they were Church teaching because this is all that I knew to do. Following rules made me feel safe. And unfortunately, many apologists and theologians were all too willing to be my conscience for me.
This, I believe, is what Pope Francis is getting at when he says in Amoris Laetita:
"We also find it hard to make room for the consciences of the faithful, who very often respond as best they can to the Gospel amid their limitations, and are capable of carrying out their own discernment in complex situations. We have been called to form consciences, not to replace them.”
We must take up the task of fostering a mature and living relationship with the Holy Spirit and follow his voice echoing in our conscience.
Amoris Laetitia keeps the inseparability and qualitative equality of the objective and the subjective.
“God of the Permanent Gap” or of ‘unreasonable effectiveness’ is not of a permanent gap between science reason thinking and having faith in religion in their inseparability and qualitative equality.
Since their joining is not kept by Bishop Robert Barron, it does not allow his exercise of an absolute power of authorisation as reasonable effectiveness at Youtube posts: Fridman-Barron, Christianity and the Catholic Church, time 50:50, as obstructed by Barron accepting the gap of higher vocation of consecrated celibate marriage vowed to man in Christ to consecrated male female marriage vowed to God.
This gap was reported closed at Luke 1:29-45 and is documented as closed by the reference point of members of my family as was the reference point for Pope Francis from his inauguration Mass on 19 March 2013 completed on 10 June 2021 in the cases simultaneously of the Italian state citizens/employees, Cardinal Angelo Becciu and nine others, and the Italian state Parliament “Zan” anti-homophobia bill.
The multiplier in economics (cf. John cpt. 6) took from its description in 1930 to 1964 to be tested as by one of the first of quantitative economists as a statistician, Colin Clark, in his accountability and amends for not having this consecration until 1946 simultaneously at the UNO Food and Agriculture Organisation and Vatican Council 2 Pope St Paul V1’s “Commission on Population” in applying simultaneously in 1964 these aspects of his repentance of accepting the conclusion of his testing of “just about paripassu rate of growth of population and food supplies in the developing countries”.
