Hi all! We’re trying something a little different this month to accompany the new Home Lesson entitled Our Catholic Heritage. It just seemed fitting that a lesson with beauty as one of the subjects should feature some inspiring images, and once we started down that road there were a few other things that also seemed to work well in this format.
As always, we value your comments. Let us know if you found this to be a helpful supplement and if you have any other specific suggestions for ways we can incorporate technology into what we do. Also, since this is new we’d like to issue a couple disclaimers up front:
While we recommend the Vatican, USCCB, and our diocesan site without reservation, we would like to be clear that when we direct you to another site via one of our links we are not necessarily endorsing the whole site, but are just referring you to an individual post.
And, as always, Family Formation does not ever recommend children be allowed on the internet without adult supervision.
Having said that, the pictures and links below go with the various corresponding sections of this month’s Home Lesson.
If you’re interested in learning more about the Vatican Observatory, watch the very short news clip below and visit their website.

Pages from illuminated manuscripts:
“Of course, we have no photos of Jesus, Mary, or most of the saints, but paintings can help us connect with them in ways that we cannot if we just read about them.” (Image credit: Wikimedia Commons)
