The Children of the Mind of Christ (Portuguese - Filhos da Mente de Cristo) was a monastic Catholic order.[1]

The chosen names of Filhos were an image of their greatest flaws.[1]



San Angelo founded the order on the planet Moctezuma, and the organization spread throughout Catholic Hundred Worlds, and eventually came to Lusitania when it was colonized.[1]
