New Year's Resolutions for a Cardinal (#7)

SEVEN TEACH YOUR EDUCATORS A LESSON It will soon be spring--time for housecleaning. Your Office of Religous Education needs it desperately.

Determine which people in that department and in each of your grade schools and high schools assent wholeheartedly to all of the Church's teachings, and which embrace "designer dogmas."

Require the latter people to update their knowledge of the Faith through solid refresher courses from 100 percent orthodox educators, with emphasis on Humanae Vitae, the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the writings of John Paul the Great. If your people flunk, cut class or talk back to the teacher, fire them and replace them with people who love ALL of the Magisterium.

Take the same approach to your colossal Religious Education Congress, coming up March 30-April 2. Tell the many dissenting speakers you have booked to unpack their bags and return their honoraria, because they are no longer welcome.

Instead, book orthodox scholars, authors, columnists, apologists and media personalities from Thomas Aquinas College, Christendom College, Franciscan University of Steubenville, Magdalen College, Ave Maria University, EWTN, Homiletic and Pastoral Review, The Wanderer, Catholics United for the Faith, Adoremus, American Life League, Catholic Answers, etc.

Finally, refuse to set foot on any local "Catholic" college or university campus whose faculty members refuse to sign the Mandatum (oath of fidelity to the Magisterium) that John Paul II called for in Ex corde Ecclesiae (1990), or which honors pro-abortion public figures, allows a "gay and lesbian" club, or hosts "The V***** Monologues."

I'm having a difficult time convincing other catechists that there are *any* dissenting speakers at REC. Is there a source which has compiled a list of who's who at the REC this year? I used to go but found a dearth of good speakers. I wish it was a little more balanced at least. It should be a resource for any catechist and not a place to wary of what you may be exposed to. Much of it now is clearly not orthodox teaching. I won't even begin about the liturgies

I go to a 'catholic' school which will be hosting the V-monologues this semester. Can you provides sources which provide information and arguments against the monologues? I'm sure there is an anti-V-monologue website of some sort, but I just can't find it.

Good for anyone who wants to stop the staging of the "V-Monologues" at "Catholic" schools. The most effective opponent I know of is: www.cardinalnewmansociety.org

Most of the stagings of the "monologues' are on or around St. Valentine's Day, so now's the time to start opposing them. Godspeed and God bless.

Dear Scopulos -- The Archdiocese at www.la-archdiocese.org lists 202 speakers for the 2006 REC March 30-April 2. Many speakers are not objectionable. But your catechist friends should google these speakers, among others: Fr. Richard Fragomeni, Fr. Richard Sparks, Fr. Michael Crosby, Fr. James Martin SJ, Fr. Thomas Reese SJ, Bp. Donald Trautman ("inclusive" language advocate), Thomas Groome, Diana Hayes, Edwina Gately and Scott Appleby (partial list). No wonder the REC gets picketed every year!

V-monologue is all over the Arch Diocese of Cinncy! My uncle and his friends have written letters to the "Occasionally" Catholic Telegraph and the Archbishop (Aka. Wimp, whos in on it probably) letters to stop this trash!
