June 20, 2006 – The Nature of Marriage and its Various Aspects
Cardinal Trujillo discusses marriage comprehensively as a natural and divine institution. In saying what marriage is, he further elaborates on the many things that it is not; de facto unions, contractual and qualified relationships, and private partnerships, inter alia, all fail to express the reality of marriage on the natural level. But Cardinal Trujillo goes beyond discussing the problems with society’s lack of respect for marriage. He sets forth the beautiful vision of marriage as an important and vital element in God’s plan of love for all of humanity. In this context, the goods of marriage are more clearly seen in their true light.
