Ideal for ages 3–8, this compilation presents animated stories of 32 saints from different times, cultures, genders, and age groups that will captivate and inspire young viewers. Each four-minute story highlights a particular saint who has followed Jesus and been strengthened by his teaching. Containing stories of converts, martyrs, servants, patrons, missionaries, miracle workers, preachers, apostles, and writers of the faith, children are provided with many role models and faith heroes.
Each saintly portrait contains a brief biography of the saint, a historical context for understanding the saint’s times, and an explanation of how the saint relates to today and how he or she can help us in our daily lives. Following each story is a prayer and a discussion question to engage young viewers in their learning experience. The length of the movie segments and the interactive applications make this teaching resource ideal for parents, teachers, and catechists.
