Theology 5: Moral Theology
“The purpose of this course is to help students understand that it is only through Christ that they can fully live out God’s plans for their lives. Students are to learn the moral concepts and precepts that govern the lives of Christ’s disciples.” – USCCB’s Doctrinal Elements of a Curriculum Framework
In this course, students will develop an understanding of the human person’s desire for infinite happiness, the role of human freedom in finding happiness, the role of moral law, and the necessity of grace that enables us to live a moral life in union with the life of Jesus Christ, so as to find happiness. Students will learn the moral concepts and precepts that point out the authentically good choices by which Christ’s disciples live their lives in holiness and experience long-term happiness in this life and in the next.
