I found this quote on a Christian page and thought it was lovely and wanted to use it for something. However I am wondering if this is aligned with Catholic teaching or am I overthinking?
“The most radical thing that will set you apart as a raving revolutionary is to be a woman at home with your children, bucking the whole system of materialism, bucking the whole system of secularism . . . and saying: I’m not interested in me, myself, and I, my body, or whatever. I’m interested in eternal things because what these children are, are the only things in this life that I can take to heaven. And so they are the only investment.”
I guess the ending sort of throws me off where he states “these children are the only things in this life that I can take to Heaven. And so they are the only investment” Aren’t our souls the only things we can take to Heaven? And shouldn’t I also invest in my marriage/husband? Or am I overthinking?
Any insight would be so helpful. Thank you!
