Virtue’s Clues
INTERNATIONAL | APOSTOLATE | NEWS
New weekly e-mail service features stories highlighting various virtues.

virtue clues

By Br. Matthew P. Schneider, LC

Catholic.net has started a new weekly e-mail called “Virtue’s Clues.” It is a weekly service with a one-page story about virtues from the lives of the saints, the news or personal experiences.

For years, Catholic.net has published a similar service in Spanish called “Virtudes y Valores” (Virtues and Values), and a handful of seminarians in Rome decided to offer the same in English.

“We figured that it was just something we had to do, kind of like when St. Paul said ‘Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel.’ If something we write can help even one person, it will be totally worth it!” said Br Thomas Flynn, LC, who helped get it off the ground.  

When asked what virtues would be covered, Br Flynn emphasized that it would be a broad and varied spectrum. “We will try to cover all the virtues that transform someone into a complete human being and a saint. We don’t want to focus on one virtue alone because we need all the virtues to grow into the person Christ wants us to be.”

Over the past few months, Br Flynn has assembled a team of 16 fellow religious to help write the weekly stories.

“I think we have a great team for this project, each one will be able to contribute their own style and experience,” he said.
