Title: Marriage and Sexuality
Subtitle: A Rosminian Proposal for Contemporary Debate
Author(s): TADINI, Samuele Francesco
Journal: Marriage, Families & Spirituality
Volume: 19 Issue: 1 Date: 2013
The vision of Antonio Rosmini on marriage and sexuality is an inspiration for contemporary reflection. The author tries to demonstrate the modernity of his point of view. Rosmini, in fact, is a classical example of a Christian thinker who knew how to advocate a renewal in the tradition of the Church, preserving the message of the Fathers of the Church and accepting the challenge of modern times. Relativism and atheism, the two names of the same disease called nihilism, have contributed to the destruction of moral, philosophical, political and theological values. The state of marriage is also affected by this disease. Rosmini is very clear and he appeals to reason to respond to both rationalism to irrationalism, the two theoretical extremes of our times. Marriage is a value and reference to the Truth and to Love guarantees victory against any provocative opinion that would seem to deny the fundamental status of marriage in itself.
