Have you ever wanted to find consistency between what we hear in church and what we do in our lives? The Church tells us that the connection can be made through living a life of virtue. Each week our students learn a virtue that helps them learn how to live the life God wants for us all. We cannot legislate virtue, but we can help our children open their heart to God. At home, you can share stories of the holy people in your own family. Talk about grandma’s compassion, a cousin’s gratitude, or a friend’s generosity. Your child will feel empowered when they know about their heritage and the people in their
own life who live lives of virtue.
The Virtue of the Week: Temperance – Temperance is the virtue that helps us to keep our desires under control and to balance our use of material goods. Scripture Reference: Galatians 5:22-23 – …The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
