Lives of the Saints
« on: March 01, 2016, 06:02:22 PM »
Is anyone using a book they really like for their kiddos? Perhaps something with pretty illustrations or icons in it? Something akin to a child's bible with pictures, easy language, etc.

I don't know of any book or any Orthodox series, but maybe you could take some Pre-Schism saints from this RC project?  :P

I find those pictures cute:


"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Pray for persecuted Christians, especially in Serbian Kosovo and Raška, Egypt and Syria

Thanks for that; those illustrations are genius.
