    How does natural law underpin the ethics of the Catholic Church?
    Secondly, how is the Catechism used as a source of authority?

    Thank youuu

    Well natural law states that every part of the world has it's own purpose and should fulfill that purpose. This underpins their teachings such as in the case of contraception and homosexuality.
    Catechisms are also very important because they explain the teachings of catholicism to priests and bishops and clears up any ambiguity (of which there is many in the bible) and also tries to explain how the rules should be applied in such a modern society with many new issues that would have never been seen in Jesus' time.
