Fr. Robert Barron speaks about the “Aboriginal Vicar of Christ in the Soul” (better known as the conscience):



  1. This is a great explanation of conscience. I think many people today confuse how they feel about something, especially sins they enjoy committing, with conscience. The 1960s addage, “If it feels good, do it,” is a trap to squelch conscience. Father Barron is clear and simple as usual.

    • Right. Just because something feels good doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s ok. Our consciences need to be molded by proper guidance, not just left for people to decide on their own. And of course for Catholics we turn to the Church, as guided by the Holy Spirit, to provide that guidance.
