Homeschooling Saints - Episode 126

May 25, 2022

If you’re like my family, it’s the classic novels that have really satisfied our need for rewarding and uplifting reading. Author, instructor, and homeschooling mom, Eleanor Nicholson, is here to share about the richness of Victorian Novels—their delights and lessons!

Find Eleanor Nicholson: www.eleanorbourgnicholson.com

Eleanor’s courses for your children:
https://homeschoolconnections.com/instructors/eleanor-bourg-nicholson/?sfw=pass1636051074 

 

Eleanor's notes/reading recommendations: 
G. K. Chesterton's The Victorian Age in Literature, C. S. Lewis' An Experiment in Criticism, and Joseph Pearce's Literature: What Every Catholic Should Know. 

For Nineteenth-century authors/books: All of the novels of Jane Austen (who isn't Victorian), most of the novels of Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins' The Woman in White, Anthony Trollope's Barchester Towers (though really it would be valuable to read all of the Barsetshire Chronicles), and Bram Stoker's Dracula. Tennyson, Hopkins, and Thompson for poetry.

Homeschoolers work very hard to raise their children to a virtuous, faith-filled adulthood, to be lights on a lampstand, and witnesses to the saving love of Christ. But how do we arm them to respond to tough questions about why their Catholicism is essential to their relationship with Jesus Christ? I’m so excited, today, to welcome John Martignoni, to talk about: Blue Collar Apologetics: A Simple, Common Sense Approach.

As Catholic homeschoolers, we want our children to develop relationships with the saints as role models and friends. However, not everyone who lived a life of heroic virtue has been formally canonized by the Church, so we might have to dig a little deeper to study their fascinating and inspiring lives.
