    Goodday to all. A little background first....


    I am a homeschooling mom of 2. I had to toss the Bible curriculum we are using because of anti-catholic under tones that my kids and I picked up. I mean anti-catholic in the One, holy, catholic and Apostolic faith sense. Now I just use the church lectionary and combine it with relevant kid's activities as much as possible.

    Today we remember St.Justin Martyr but I just cannot find much info that highlights his virtues (that is the angle I am going for when teaching them about the Saints).

    Can you please help and recommend a resource that deals deeper with the Saints and their lives?

    No Sure if it exactly helps, but on a number of websites I use a feed from Daily Gospel which is out of the US Catholic (of the latin variety). I really like the readings from the fathers and others provided in the daily commentary. It may be a bit adult, however it is a great resource.

    hank you Br. Phillip. This will help! I will read it and prepare a lesson out of the website to align with their level of understanding.

    Would members here like to see put online a history of the Church Fathers in the Anglican tradition? There are worthy aged Anglican treatises such as Donald Lupton's The Glory of Their Times, or, the Lives of the Primitive Fathers (1640):
