More resources to oppose pseudo-sodo-marriage August 20, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in awesomeness, Basics, catachesis, General Catholic, Glory, Grace, Sacraments, sanctity, Tradition, Virtue.
The great Unam Sanctam Catholicam has put together some videos (and is working on more) to help catechize Catholics on the subject of marriage, the marital act, and sins opposed to these great, God-given goods. Longtime readers are probably already brilliantly catechized on this subject by me (modesty!), but I picked up a number of good points from these videos. I highly recommend everything USC produces, and these videos are of course included.
The first video briefly examines what marriage is, what it is ordered towards (primarily procreation, NOT unity/comfort of the spouses), and then switches to the evil of sodomy or “homosexuality.” It also covers corruptions of marriage like polygamy that, due to men’s hardness of hearts and incomplete revelation, were permitted in the Old Testament times.
The second video focuses more on the ends of marriage and how those ends have become corrupted by fallen men over time. Even within the Church, as we consider the shocking deliberations of the Extraordinary Synod, many have become corrupted by disastrously false understandings of marriage and all related matters. Marriage has natural and supernatural ends. More good stuff!
Y’all have a good night! I had a bad day, pray for me! Nobody likes the prophet of doom, I suppose. But it’s pretty defeating to find support lacking where one would most expect it (and know, dear reader, I do not mean you).
