The notion of sin has been lost

he idea of reciprocal fidelity still persists, thank God, in the new couples, but without religious base, or what is the same, without a morally sound foundation. These couples are so fragile, so exposed to the slightest setback, and so prone to rupture.
I do not know whether to speak of sin is socially correct, and I fear that it is not even religiously speaking outside the strictly ecclesiastical walls. It seems that the sin is not of "fashion" judging by what we can see among the young people of our day. The vast majority are matched by the good ones, and that's it. The more formal ones are "married", it is a saying, before the justice of the peace, or before a notary, or mount a "rite" more or less quirky after living together or know the time, so that the girl can wear a wedding dress equal or similar to the last celebrity of the journals of the Cuore. But all that, as long as they do not pass through the vicarage, is to live in a state of permanent sin, without causing them, and this is the grave, no remorse or problem of conscience.
When I was behind, back in the 1940 and even later, it was all a sin, especially in the matter of the sixth commandment. But now, precisely in this matter, it gives the impression that everything goes.
Such a state of things does not reach the level of secularism, much less conscious atheism. Rather it seems to be a kind of indifference, of moral indolent that currently predominates among the youth. It is not from now, but it comes from behind, but now it has become widespread in such a way that it is registered in young people of traditionally religious and educated families, it is also a saying, in schools of religious congregations, that God frees us from what they have been teaching in many of them.
As it shows, it's worth a button: I have a son who studied high school in a great school of the Clergies of San Viator that they have in Madrid. Naturally I was interested in the progress of his studies, as I was interested in everyone else's. Arrived certain day of the week, when asking him "what you have today", he answered me, very serious: "Marxism". How Marxism? "Yes, religion", but the brother gives it to us in the key of liberation theology, and in the end, he ends up talking about Marxism. In complimentary terms, of course.
Apart from the background of many schools of priests and the public university assaulted throughout Spain by communists and nationalists of the most diverse fur, I would like to know who propagates, in particular, this moral indifference that as the plague of the lobster is Destroying the sacramental spirit of marriage.
The idea of reciprocal fidelity still persists, thanks to God, in the new couples, but without religious basis, or what is the same, without a morally solid foundation. Hence, these couples are so fragile, so exposed to the slightest setback, and so prone to breakup. That explains the growing number of domestic tragedies that are served daily by the media. And what is to be feared: it will increase. If marriage is trivialized, the concept of family is ruined, so that, in the absence of a marriage or a family of truth, anything less blessings from God can be expected from such situations.
