The Synderesis Principle validates Morality in Nature

The Synderesis Principle
Synderesis is called the law of our understanding inasmuch as it is the habit of keeping the precepts of natural law, which are the first principles of human activity. (Q. 94, 1)

As noted above, our knowledge of all natural law arises from synderesis, which is an inborn habit of our practical reason. Thomas explains this habit in three key places:

...the principles our nature imparts to us in practical matters do not belong to a special power but to a special habit there by nature, synderesis. And thus synderesis is said to incite us to good and to deter us from evil in that through first principles we both begin investigation and judge what we find. (1a Q. 79, 12)

Natural reason determines beforehand the ends of moral virtue by what is called synderesis.... (2a2ae, Q. 47, 6)
