Being a good Catholic boy, and being very hungry, Felix did the right thing. Paragraph 2408 of the "Catechism of the Catholic Church" tells us:
"2408 The seventh commandment forbids theft, that is, usurping another's property against the reasonable will of the owner. There is no theft if consent can be presumed or if refusal is contrary to reason and the universal destination of goods. This is the case in obvious and urgent necessity when the only way to provide for immediate, essential needs (food, shelter, clothing . . .) is to put at one's disposal and use the property of others."
Felix and I love that book, it's been our guiding light forever.
