"All human beings desire to know, and truth is the proper object of this desire. Everyday life shows how concerned each of us is to discover for ourselves, beyond mere opinions, to know how things really are.

People cannot be genuinely indifferent to the question of whether what they know is true or not. If they discover that it is false, they reject it; but if they can establish its truth, they feel themselves rewarded.

It is this that St. Augustine teaches when he writes: "I have met many who wanted to deceive, but none who wanted to be deceived." — John Paul II, Encyclical Fides et Ratio

The Nonviolent Jesus of the Gospels and Christian Just-Unjust War Theory are both examined, in light of the primal moral obligation to seek the truth and to adhere to it if found, by Rev. Emmanuel Charles McCarthy at Oscott College, St. Mary's Seminary, Birmingham, England. Running Time 58 mins. Recorded in 2012 by Peter McGuinness.
