Recognizing that even the Saints had their setbacks and struggles, we too are on our Journey to Heaven. Imagine the board game of Trouble as that Journey…walking side by side with our heroes, the Saints! Blessed by intercession with the saints, we Catholics can walk the walk, in the company of the Saints!
I think that the painted wooden dolls lend themselves perfectly to how we can learn from the Saints, seek their intercession and foster the desire to grow in holiness!
Spiderman is cool and so is Superman, but aren’t the Saints our ultimate heroes?
(see Checkers: Converted 2 Catholic! ), Monopoly, Trouble…
Wouldn’t these games be more fun, if we had meaningful game pieces?
