I get depressed when I open my "Flock" but this one takes the biscuit!
In it Daphne, (retired head teacher of a catholic primary school) goes through the new catholic RE course "Come and See" and lists many errors and heresies in it. Yikes - all I can say is DEO GRATIAS my boy is NOT at a catholic state primary. Hopefully NOT ALL catholic primaries will take this course on BUT parents need to be alerted to this one, which is terrible.
I urge you to go to the website www.proecclesia.com and read all about the theological errors in this RE programme. It isn't a joke and one wonders what is actually going on with our hierarchy?! Bishops dear bishops please wake up and don't allow this course in your primary schools. Souls are at stake here! Daphne has sent her critique to every bishop in the land, plus to the CDF.
It won't take long to read.
On another note our parish priest was promoting a book by the famous mystic Vassula Ryden - published this year - called "Heaven is real, but so is Hell: An eyewitness account of what is to come". I have put the book on my wish list. I know this mystic is controversial, but Cardinal Ratzinger was quite favourable towards her writings when he headed the CDF. Cardinal Levada was not so keen. Good on our PP though. Hell is just so not PC is it? But Vassula is right - hell exists, even if a large majority don't believe in it. Until and indeed if the Vatican condemns her I see no reason why I can't read this book.
