The Importance of the Family

Fr Z thinks the "money quote" from an address Raymond Cardinal Burke gave in Great Britain was “If we can’t get it straight with regard to the truth about marriage and the family, we really don’t have much to say about anything else.”

It reminded me of a quote I dug up when putting together a Festschrift, (I didn't know that was what it was, at the time ;oP) for a great, great woman, who was like a Mother to me.
It was suppoed to have been spoken by Jackie Kenndy, a woman about whom I had little opinion until that time, and what I had, not all that kind.
If you mess up raising your children, it doesn't much matter what else you do well.
