She was to keep intact the truths of faith which His followers were to believe. So, too, are a wealth of other passages in the Old Testament. There is grave danger that our interpretation of "nature" in Romans 2 may involve us in ethical contradictions. In a Christian home, parents have the strength to lead their children to a real Christian maturation of their personalities, according to the measure of Christ, in his Mystical Body, the Church.(74) While the family is rich in these strengths, it also needs the support of the State and society, according to the principle of subsidiarity: "It can happen...that when a family does decide to live up fully to its vocation, it finds itself without the necessary support from the State and without sufficient resources.

For by employing religious force in the service of its political considerations, the crown aroused a spirit which at that outset it had not considered possible. Although the value of humilitas implied a sharp contrast to the values of honor and rank, one can find forms of expression, which revealed a noble’s or ruler’s humility.

In the above passages the Holy Spirit makes it right clear that human nature alone is incapable of Christian morality and needs divine help and guidance. A very important part of this model is to ask: "What are the courses of action that may be taken?" If we haven't become completely preoccupied with liberty and rights, self-interest and self-esteem, autonomy and individualism, we are in danger of this; we are losing our ability to speak meaningfully about virtue and duty, love and self-sacrifice, community and justice.

The classroom rules should be clearly explained including the source (see my article Daring to Discuss Religion in the Classroom ), modeled by the teacher, and firmly (but lovingly) enforced at all times. Kinkade's images are splashed across greeting cards and magnets and tote bags and calendars. We should not pray to live in Sodom or in Vanity Fair. And what law is to human nature, morality is to law. But there are dangers in uncritically conceiving of morality as a matter primarily of personal virtue.

A teacher possessing the virtue of gravity seeks "to win students' confidence,. .. to know the virtues they may possess,. .. to discern their vices and defects, in order to correct these." The first meeting in April, 1994 opened with a list of disputes ranging from religious holidays and prayer to school reform and sex education.

These "shoulds" define collective effort because they are fundamental to trust and to team relationships that entail risk. There are a lot of views and opinions about globalization of norms and values.
