Natural Law: Ordering of Creation

with Fr. Conrad Murphy

In the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther King, and many others, an unjust law is a human law which is not based on eternal and natural law.  That then begs the question, what is natural law, and what is law in general? Listen up for an answer, some clarifications, and just how we can apply natural law to our daily decision making.
