R. R. Reno describes the meaning of marriage :
We now see love between men and women as feelings of affection and desire that may feel strong but arent necessarily permanent. Thats because weve unraveled amorous feelings and the potent power of sexual desire from the enduring, permanent fact of new life. Marriage requires both if its to shine with the luminosity of eternity, which is what most who marry desire, even if they cant articulate or even identify it.
Also today, Matt Emerson analyzes competing revelations :
Even among those who declare no connection with God, reason operates under what amounts to a kind of revelation. These skeptics dont conceive of revelation in the same way that I do as a Catholic, but for many, the ultimate source of an epistemological guide does not matter: Certain perceived facts, or certain foundational positions, hold the same thetical value for them as the Bible does for many Christians.
