What is the purpose of life? TO BE A SAINT. How do you BE A SAINT? Say yes to God all the time. How do we say yes to God all the time?Pray and live VIRTUE!!
I remind the kids this before every class, as I volunteer to teach virtue as a weekly “special.”
I love Education in Virtue. I volunteer at the Catholic School to give the teachers K-5 a 1/2 hour of prep time each week. I am not a teacher, so I purchased the posters to give me a teaching aid. Each week I bring in a virtue poster into the class room and have different kids read aloud what is on the poster, we take time discussing each example and have the kids tell examples of how they have lived the virtue.
Teachers and students love having Disciple of Christ, Education in Virtue planned into their week as a “special.”
The kids look up bible passages and read them and then we discuss how the passage fits the virtue. While some kids are looking up bible passages I have other kids plan and do a skit giving either an example of living the virtue or an example of what happens if we don’t live the particular virtue. This usually takes 2 class periods to get though the material. When I’m done in the class room the posters are hung though out the school.
