Like everyone, as I progressed through my life, there has been no shortage of moral dilemmas. Whether related to family, career, or personal choices, I did my best to navigate them, enlisting the help of my priest when I felt I couldn’t get to the right solution on big problems. Every time I brought a dilemma to my priest, he seemed to have a solution that felt much better than what I was able to come up with. As relieving as it was to have sound guidance in these situations, it highlighted the fact that I was missing something. My priest possessed a reliable compass that allowed him to determine the right direction even in difficult circumstances. Over the years, I’ve searched for such a compass like the one my priest possessed, and I feel I’ve found a very good one, which is called Catholic Social Teaching, or CST.
