Civil Disobedience

Catholic Principles of Political Participation
Schenck, Rev. Paul
Tuesdays, July 19 and 26 @ 7:30 p.m. ET

“Recognizing that natural law is the basis for and places limits on positive law means admitting that it is legitimate to resist authority should it violate in a serious or repeated manner the essential principles of natural law. … Natural law is therefore the basis of the right to resistance.”

Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, No. 400
