#OCSB low curriculum standards. #s2bgn #ottnews #ocsbdl

Students in traditional and/or classical schools are reading CS Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe on their own in Grade 4 and 5. See the curriculum links at bottom. Meanwhile, “progressive” OCSB has to have teachers reading the same book to students. Readalouds. Sad! Grade 5s being read a book they should be reading themselves in Grade 3

This is progress for the 21st century? this is “deep learning”?

The following tweet is like decorating your front entrance with Easter lillies, saying it looks a lot like Easter, and that next week is Ash Wednesday!

If you can’t get the easy stuff like liturgical seasons right, how can we depend on the ocsb to get the more difficult things right?

PS: expect teachers to start scaring children with Elf on the Shelf starting next week – trying to keep them well behaved .

#OCSB deep learning is pretty shallow. #ocsbdl #s2bgn #ottnews

 

We know that St Thomas More schoo is in decline. EQAO scores are plummeting. However, we want ro congratulate them on at least trying to teach kids about saints. This is better than 95% of OCSB schools.

TEACHER TWEET:

What a wonderful Saints Walk today @ThomasMoreOCSB ! Our grade 4s compiled what they learned– take a look! https://t.co/0HGg8Fhp0O #ocsbDL

=====

Apparently, the above is “deep learning”. I know some homeschooled Grade 4s.  Just average normal grade 4s. When they study the saints, they read 150page books that are for sale at St Patrick’s Giftshop on Kent street eg.

https://www.ignatius.com/Products/ECA-P/edmund-campion.aspx

 

But apparently “deep learning” at OCSB means

  • spelling St Joan of Arc as St Jhon
  • thinking that Mary Magdalene was Jesus’ mother
  • St Mary Magdalene comes from Mandala
  • atrocious, unreadable printing and writing.
  • St Nicholas is little more than “Santa” (what about him striking heretic Arius?)
  • St Therese of Lisieux, not Mother Teresa said “if you judge people, you have…”
  • Mary Magdalene married a man named Simon (handwritten sheet below )
  • Etc

 

Not deep learning!!

#OCSB elementary school has Quran on “Prayer Table” #s2bgn

Caveat: This blog calls for respect for Muslim PEOPLE. However, the Quran is not something to be shared with young impressionable Catholic children who may learn to equate it with our glorious Holy Bible!

====

Prayer table at “catholic” school in Alta Vista, Ottawa has an English language Quran for use in prayer!

Why don’t they try to imitate great St Francis of Assisi:

https://www.ewtn.com/library/CHISTORY/francsmuslm.htm

St Francis:

When brought to the Sultan, Francis said, “I am sent by the Most High God, to show you and your people the way of salvation by announcing to you the truths of the Gospel” . And when Saint Francis preached, the Sultan felt himself very much drawn to Francis and to the power of his words. So much so, that he invited Francis to stay with him.

“Willingly,” Francis replied, “if you and your people will be converted to Christ”.

Francis then proposed his famous challenge. He said: “If you yet waver between Christ and Mohammed, order a fire kindled and I will go into it with your priests that you may see which is the true Faith”.

==================================

OCSB: STOP WAVERING BETWEEN CHRIST AND MOHAMMED!!

@janmulvihill thanks to your inspiration our prayer table came alive this week Ss brought Quran and We day memories https://t.co/Deyo4fwFKI

==================

Firstly, the Kenyan Bishops have asked Canadian Catholics to stop associating with We Day/Free the Children because of what FTC is doing in their country. One can only speculate why the OCSB is ignoring these black Bishops.

Secondly, what do the saints say about Islam and Mohammed:

The following is a brief list of quotes from Catholic saints about Islam and its founder, Muhammad. This list is by no means exhaustive, but it is illustrative of how Catholics — particularly those favored sons and daughters of the Church we now know to be in heaven — viewed the Muslim faith in prior generations:

“Whoever does not embrace the Catholic Christian faith is lost, like your false prophet Muhammad.”

-St. Peter Mavimenus (d. 8th century), martyr from Gaza. Response reported in the Martyriologum Romanum when he was asked to convert to Islam by a group of Muslims.

 

“There is also the superstition of the Ishmaelites which to this day prevails and keeps people in error, being a forerunner of the Antichrist…. From that time to the present a false prophet named Mohammed has appeared in their midst. This man, after having chanced upon the Old and New Testaments and likewise, it seems, having conversed with an Arian monk, devised his own heresy. Then, having insinuated himself into the good graces of the people by a show of seeming piety, he gave out that a certain book had been sent down to him from heaven. He had set down some ridiculous compositions in this book of his and he gave it to them as an object of veneration.”

-St. John Damascene (d. 749), Syrian Arab Catholic monk and scholar. Quoted from his book On Heresies under the section On the Heresy of the Ishmaelites (in The Fathers of the Church. Vol. 37. Translated by the Catholic University of America. CUA Press. 1958. Pages 153-160.)

 

“We profess Christ to be truly God and your prophet to be a precursor of the Antichrist and other profane doctrine.”

-Sts. Habenitus, Jeremiah, Peter, Sabinian, Walabonsus, and Wistremundus (d. 851), martyrs of Cordoba, Spain. Reported in the Memoriale Sanctorum in response to Spanish Umayyad Caliph ‘Abd Ar-Rahman II’s ministers that they convert to Islam on pain of death.

 

“Any cult which denies the divinity of Christ, does not profess the existence of the Holy Trinity, refutes baptism, defames Christians, and derogates the priesthood, we consider to be damned.”

-Sts. Aurelius, Felix, George, Liliosa, and Natalia (d. 852), martyrs of Cordoba, Spain. Reported in the Memoriale Sanctorum in response to Spanish Umayyad Caliph ‘Abd Ar-Rahman II’s ministers that they convert to Islam on pain of death.

 

“On the other hand, those who founded sects committed to erroneous doctrines proceeded in a way that is opposite to this, the point is clear in the case of Muhammad. He seduced the people by promises of carnal pleasure to which the concupiscence of the flesh goads us. His teaching also contained precepts that were in conformity with his promises, and he gave free rein to carnal pleasure. In all this, as is not unexpected, he was obeyed by carnal men. As for proofs of the truth of his doctrine, he brought forward only such as could be grasped by the natural ability of anyone with a very modest wisdom. Indeed, the truths that he taught he mingled with many fables and with doctrines of the greatest falsity. He did not bring forth any signs produced in a supernatural way, which alone fittingly gives witness to divine inspiration; for a visible action that can be only divine reveals an invisibly inspired teacher of truth. On the contrary, Muhammad said that he was sent in the power of his arms—which are signs not lacking even to robbers and tyrants.”

-St. Thomas Aquinas (d. 1274), Theologian and Doctor of the Church. Quoted from his De Rationibus Fidei Contra Saracenos, Graecos, et Armenos and translated from Fr. Damian Fehlner’s Aquinas on Reasons for the Faith: Against the Muslims, Greeks, and Armenians (Franciscans of the Immaculate. 2002.).

 

“As we have seen, Muhammed had neither supernatural miracles nor natural motives of reason to persuade those of his sect. As he lacked in everything, he took to bestial and barbaric means, which is the force of arms. Thus he introduced and promulgated his message with robberies, murders, and bloodshedding, destroying those who did not want to receive it, and with the same means his ministers conserve this today, until God placates his anger and destroys this pestilence from the earth.

[…]

(Muhammad) can also be figured for the dragon in the same Apocalypse which says that the dragon swept up a third of the stars and hurled down a third to earth. Although this line is more appropriately understood concerning the Antichrist, Mohammed was his precursor – the prophet of Satan, father of the sons of haughtiness.

[…]

Even if all the things contained in his law were fables in philosophy and errors in theology, even for those who do not possess the light of reason, the very manners (Islam) teaches are from a school of vicious bestialities. (Muhammad) did not prove his new sect with any motive, having neither supernatural miracles nor natural reasons, but solely the force of arms, violence, fictions, lies, and carnal license. It remains an impious, blasphemous, vicious cult, an innovention of the devil, and the direct way into the fires of hell. It does not even merit the name of being called a religion.”

-St. Juan de Ribera (d.1611), Archbishop of Valencia, missionary to Spanish Muslims, and organizer of the Muslim expulsions of 1609 from Spain. Quoted in several locations from his 1599 Catechismo para la Instruccion de los Nuevos Convertidos de los Moros (my translation).

 

“The Mahometan paradise, however, is only fit for beasts; for filthy sensual pleasure is all the believer has to expect there.”

St. Alfonsus Liguori (d. 1787). Quoted from his book, The History of Heresies and their Refutation.

We Day normalizes gender dysphoria for Vancouver #catholic students

Mom with trans child and now a trans husband:

Catholic students attended from various schools eg:

http://www.ourladyofsorrows.ca/ols/download/file/376/

 

Cisva actually has a pretty good policy about gender dysphoria ,  but sending children to an event which normalizes gender dysphoria is not good for the students!

Pdf of policy

policy_cisva-1

Archbishop Miller and the Archdiocese are generally quite good. this must have slipped under radar. Time to withdraw all schools from WeDay and recommend to other bishops that they do the same.
