Everyone seems to agree that Western Civilisation is in trouble. The problem is that no one agrees on what has gone wrong or what to do about it. But what if the problem goes to the very foundations of who we are as human beings in relationship with God?
Scott Hahn makes the startling claim that our societyÔÇÖs ills and its cures are rooted in whether we reject or accept the divine graces made available through the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony.

Man, he argues, is social in his very nature. We were created for community. The family, formed through the Sacrament of Matrimony, is the most basic building block of every societyÔÇöwhether we like it or not. WeÔÇÖve corrupted marriage, and so we have a corrupt society. If we get marriage right, our society, through GodÔÇÖs grace, will flourish.

Why? Because Matrimony, like all the sacraments, heals and elevates human nature. Without marriage, our ambitions toward a just social order are futile. With it, the seemingly impossible, a truly peaceful and humane civilisation, becomes possible.
