Saint Gregory the Great was an organized person. He introduced the calendar most of the world still uses today. He also compiled a list of the things that would certainly lead to a happy life. We know these things as the virtues. Over the next few lessons in the Gospel Weeklies, the children will learn how God wants them to treat one another, especially by doing the Works of Mercy. The Seven Basic Virtues: Secrets to a Happy Life will help you share the moral and theological virtues with children of all ages. This free printable can also start a good conversation about which of the virtues should be included in your class covenant.
