The natural law and acting in truth and freedom

Freedom cannot be restricted by an individualistic perspective; its deepness and broadness must be defended as it is part of the image of God; thus, justice requires to recognize everybody’s freedom as a sign of dignity and responsibility.
Rights and duties are inextricably connected in the person, so it is contradictory affirming rights without acknowledging corresponding responsibilities.
Beyond structures of sin and juridical systems, the interdependences must be purified and transformed into structures of solidarity for the common good.
This morality is demanded and facilitated by virtues “because we are all really responsible for all”  to foster the human dignity through the values of truth, freedom, justice and love.
Men and women have the duty to respect and bear responsible witness to the truth; that corresponds to their personal dignity to found a fruitful community, making people more spiritually mature, responsible and open to others, aware of the dignity of the neediest and weakest as well, and responsible toward the future generations. -  email:
