Gracieland Table Talk for “She Wants to Be in That Number”

We would like to encourage you to share a family meal and Gracieland together. Each week we will be posting some discussion starters that you can share with your family. Share the webstrip with your kids, grab a plate, pull up a chair, and talk.

Ask your child:

What does Gracie want to be? Why?

Is there really an application process to being a saint?

What does delusional thinking mean?

Why does Anthony think Gracie can’t be a saint?

What would you like to be the patron saint of?
