Cultivating the Virtues | God Gives the Growth is a video series by the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist and it is our hope that it will help you in educating the next generation about the joy of living a virtuous life.
Each virtue unit, taught by a Sister, is divided into four distinct lessons with videos, worksheets, and activities.
1) LEARN | Your child or students will be taught the virtue and, most especially, how to cultivate it in their daily lives.
2) LIVE | An animated story about the virtue will reinforce the lesson taught and show what it looks like and sounds like.
3) WITNESS | The Saints are the cloud of witnesses who have gone before us and lived virtue heroically. Students will learn about the life of a Saint who exemplified the virtue.
4) PRAY | A Sister will guide the child or students through a prayerful lectio divina — meditating on Scripture — and teach them how to integrate it into their daily lives. It is important to know and understand that the virtuous life is a response of grace — God Gives the Growth.
The recommended resources for the lessons are found in the Materials tab above. All of these were developed by teachers for teachers and are color-coded, practical, and intuitive. The lessons will be more effective if you have these resources available for teaching and reinforcement.
We invite you to spend time on our store website and learn more about the Education in Virtue® resources.
Please pray for us as we continue to develop this course and many others—we are striving to raise up a generation that is convinced character matters and living virtuously enables them to be the person God created them to be—to know the joy of living in friendship with God and others. In sum, to know Happiness is Living a Virtuous Life.
