Me myself and I

Moira Noonan delivers her excellent testimony about being indoctrinated in the New Age as a young woman, and finally breaking free of it after 25 years with the help of an exorcism.

A key prayer, which she says is necessary in today's spiritual warfare, and which she recommends parents teach to their children, is the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel.

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

I hope and pray that anyone who is currently into New Age practices will recognize that their "me-myself-and-I" mantra will not work. It is better to look towards the Father-Son-and-Holy Spirit instead. Indeed, Christianity is the antidote to the New Age.

Hail Mary ...

The Price to Pay


Our worst fears are true: the sex curriculum will not change much for Catholic schools

Catholic parents have been waiting for the radical sex curriculum to be adapted for Catholic schools. Cardinal Thomas Collins said that the controversial curriculum would be implemented with a "Catholic lens." However, one Catholic board has already posted the revised curriculum on their website and once we remove the positive sounding rhetoric it's basically the same as what public school are sadly going to teach. Catholic parents should not accept this capitulation. Here's why.

The Ottawa Catholic School Board has released the sex curriculum adapted by the Institute for Catholic Education (ICE); this is the organization that the bishops said had the responsibility to accommodate the sex curriculum for Catholic schools. However, the whole exercise is totally disappointing if parents thought that Catholic education would be protected on the important issues of human sexuality, the definition and meaning of the person and the family. The board website states, "The Institute for Catholic Education views the new curriculum as an opportunity for parents and teachers to talk to students about a distinctively Catholic view of human life, sexuality, marriage, and family." To write this about a radical and controversial sex curriculum is to distort Catholic teaching at best and a complete lie at worst. We don't discuss Catholic doctrine in order to suit current trends or to please a government that is obsessed with the politically correct. Instead, as Catholics we should know the Catechism and teach it to our children. Otherwise we turn the Ten Commandments into the ten suggestions and faith issues become just another optional choice among many.
