The transcendent importance of marriage

*
President Henry B Eyring CJCLDS


*
Former English Chief (Orthodox) Rabbi Jonathan Sacks


Note - Both of these are wise, stirring, moving, fine speeches on a subject of supreme importance here and now.

Things have come to a point of clarity and polarity: Marriage is either of transcendent importance (as Eyring and Sacks state), or else if this transcendent importance is denied (or the possibility of transcendence of this world itself denied) - then marriage will be destroyed utterly and the world, human life, will be drained of value (not completely drained, but decisively, qualitatively, tragically).
