Individual Task 3 – Ethical principles

Posted on: April 9, 2008

1.) Define the term ‘moral integrity’

1) What I come think of when a person say’s moral integrity is something on the bases of seeing how honest a person is towards his/her ethical believes.
2.) Describe why Maximillian Kolbe is regarded as a Christian of exemplary moral integrity.
 

 

2) The reason why Maximillian Kolbe is regarded as a Christian of having very good moral integrity is because he was a very good person (he helped out poor people and those in need). As well as he gave up his life for someone else’s. 
3.) Outline Maximillians ethical actions/principles that he demonstrated in Auschwitz.
 

 

3) The ethical actions/principles that he demonstrated in Auschwitz were-

·     A man from Kolbe’s barracks vanished, prompting, the deputy camp commander, to pick 10 men from the same barracks to be starved to death, in order to deter further escape attempts. One of the selected men, cried out, lamenting his family, and Kolbe volunteered to take his place.

·      During the time in the cell Maximillian led the men in songs and prayer.     

4.) Evaluate whether you think he made the right decision and provide research to support your answer. i.e. Catholic teachings.

4) It was his upbringing that I would say which caused him to make a decision he was devoted Mary and also his missionaries and having a life lived so humbly did he volunteer to die instead. In my eyes it was a right decision and it was such actions that showed us how self less he was because there aren’t many people who would give up there life for others.
