The issue of natural law is significant in moral theology and legislation. On one hand, it is the expression and guarantee of the dignity of human person and its natural rights. On the other hand, the universality of knowing it with the help of rational mind and affirmation of human being in its whole integrity and finality, which is present in it, make it a crucial criterion for the regulation of civil rights and a common ground for cooperation of states and societies. The interpretation of this topic by John Paul II stems from and refers to the teaching of Thomas Aquinas. However, due to phenomenological and ethical character of the papal thought and its teaching cultural context it has its own unique characteristics. It corrects erroneous interpretations, such as: ethical subjectivism, proportionalism, consequentialism or fundamental option theory. The papal understanding can be described in terms of personalism of natural law understanding, bringing out – in the spirit of papal body theology – the significance of dynamisms of spiritual and body nature in the examination and application of natural law; he interprets the issues of morality in relation to, nature, freedom and truth.
