Conscience Before Contract


All Catholics are bound by the contract of conscience to obey the laws of the Church in spite of business contracts or other obligations assumed in everyday life, says the Vatican paper, Osservatore Romano.

The paper comments on the Holy Office order concerning the sale of Italian Communist publications by Catholic newsboys. The order said that newsboys could sell suchpublications if business contracts forced them to do so, although they were bound to may this co-operation as ineffective as possible.

" Whatever may have been," said the Osservatore, " the duties yesterday of jurists, of newsboys today or tomorrow of whatever contractor for whatever activity and with whatever party, the laws of God and the Church remain in full force"
