People have lost also the sense of mistery. It is covered because there wisdom in not seeing and not knowing some things. We simply cannot bear to not know and in this barbaric impulse we dessacrate everything.
I use to say that we have completely lost the sense of intimacy. Relationships are public -sometimes even visually so - sex is openly discussed in graphic details, "spousal love" instead of an intimate relationship between a man and woman is just friendship (which is a social, "exterior" kind of relationship) with sex involved.
Once people have lost this sense of their own mistery that is intimacy, the sacred, which is the intimacy of God, becomes completely unimaginable, an utter repulsively arbitrary "rule". It is as Jesus said: "If you don't love that which you see, how will you love that that you cannot see?" The same goes for mistery, which in individual lives is what is intimate and in religious life what is sacred: something that even if you are able to see, you must not look towards it, you must not touch it, you must treat it with reverence. In a sense it is an ascetic fasting of experience that opens the nous to a kind of glory the irreverent is completely blind to.
This lust to change everything, to modernize everything, to unite with everyone, to reveal everything has the same roots of our modern promiscuity, this loss of wonder in face of mistery.
