Q. 1. Can you tell me, what is the meaning of the phrase "Dolus malice" according to the teachings of the Catholic Church?
A. 1. In simple words, "dolus malice" is a deliberate intention of breaking the law through "fraud and deceit."
"Malice" is equal to "evil intent." The person has the intent, without just cause or reason, to commit a wrongful act that will result in the harm of another person.
"Dolus" includes the idea of fraud. It represents the will or intention to do wrong.
