My starting point in ensuring for myself a firm basis in the Catholic moral tradition will be the three "sources of morality" that are dealt with in Veritatis Splendor (§74). Those three sources of morality, sometimes called the Fonts of Morality, are the object chosen, the intended end, and the circumstances (including consequences) surrounding the action. In particular while I read, I will be noting every way in which I can oppose utilitarianism (including the so-called modern utilitarianism) and pragmatism.
In supplement to Veritatis Splendor, I will also re-read and analyze an article from the Summer 2010 issue of Communio called Experience of Nature, Moral Experience: Interpreting Veritatis Splendor's "Perspective of the Acting Person" by David Crawford. This article provides a solid argument against what I hope I recall correctly to be situational ethics and proportionalism.
Experience of Nature, Moral Experience: Interpreting Veritatis Splendor's "Perspective of the Acting Person"
Very briefly, my intention when I analyze this further is to examine the Buddhist conception of human suffering as existential pain, and determine how far this can be related to the Christian understanding of the dissatisfaction of Man while not united with God. It should be interesting if I can put together a solid post on that.
Ok, now I'm done for real. God bless.
