The new Archbishop has yet to be installed and he has asked for NO religious educational materials to be ordered for next year. We know he is teacher at heart.
We have had our children subjected to a list of allowable materials that are so watered down no wonder they are leaving the Church in ignorance. This will have a "bottoms up" effect helping those that changed their diapers(their parents) to strengthen their faith with a mature mind. Let's pray that this order includes "safe environment" training we have now that has no spiritual component.
Sadlier Publishing, for example, has had Mary Jo Tully's influence in having it as the oldest standby's. She was a DRE in Chicago before she came to Oregon decades ago. Sadlier has used her materials and music from the OCP formerly known as the Oregon Catholic Press, having left its Catholicity behind.
NOW the axe will drop on the liberal music of Schutte, Haas and Haugen who are former Jesuits (which should have set off alarms) and sell their music to any denomination. Our new Archbishop loves music that inspires. Prayer that inspires. As we pray so we believe. lex orandi lex credendi
However, I digress. Bob Mizia, the Superintendent of Schools is responsible for the Earth Charter being taught in schools. It is part of the United Nations attempt to take God out of the lives of our youth. It is time that Mr. Mizia was called to account.
We now have an Archbishop that will have that as part of his agenda and we are thankful.
