Father Smith was testing on the commandments. He gave an example and
asked the children to tell him what commandment was broken. First he said
he was tired one Sunday and decided to stay home. Eager hands went up:
“Third Commandment, keep holy the Lord’s Day.” Next he said that he saw
Jimmy’s bike and took it home to keep. Again, eager hands: “Seventh
Commandment, thou shalt not steal.” Finally he said he was walking along and saw John’s
dog. He started pulling the dog by the tail. Hands went up and quickly down. The one
hesitant little voice said, “I don’t know the number but it goes like this, ‘What God has joined
together, let no man pull apart’.”

Real Academic Freedom
One of the areas where this sin has done damage recently is in Catholic higher education.
During recent decades, some influential Catholic academics have been promoting a false brand of
academic freedom. Real academic freedom simply means that professors and researchers should
be allowed to follow the truth wherever careful analysis and evidence leads them. This was violated,
for example, in Stalinist Russia and Nazi Germany. If professors in those regimes questioned the
reigning political wisdom, they were punished - severely. But the ideal of academic freedom can also
be abused. It can be raised as a banner for relativism, a worldview that says all opinions are of equal
value, since no truth can be known for certain anyway. But if truth cannot be known, then academic
freedom has no real meaning. Education would just be a popularity contest or a power-play in which
each professor tries to impose his own personal truth on his students by force or seduction, not by
rational argument. Like the arrogance of the Pharisees, relativism closes off the mind from God's light
and wisdom. This false academic freedom has infiltrated many institutions of higher learning, even
Catholic ones. As a result, many Catholic families make great financial sacrifices to send their
children to Catholic colleges, only to find out later that those very colleges are teaching against the
truths of the Catholic faith. And that relativistic teaching has a ripple effect on the rest of college
culture, so that students are encouraged, among other things, to experiment with immoral behavior,
since moral truth, the relativists say, is as unsubstantial as academic truth. The results? Many
Catholic colleges have the same rates of drug and alcohol abuse, depression, suicide, unwanted
pregnancies, abortions, and sexually-transmitted diseases as the non-Catholic colleges - all because
of this diabolical sin of intellectual pride.
QUOTATION FROM POPE BENEDICT XVI
"Teachers and administrators, whether in universities or schools, have the duty and privilege to
ensure that students receive instruction in Catholic doctrine and practice. This requires that public
witness to the way of Christ, as found in the Gospel and upheld by the Church's Magisterium, shapes
all aspects of an institution's life, both inside and outside the classroom. Divergence from this vision
weakens Catholic identity and, far from advancing freedom, inevitably leads to confusion, whether
moral, intellectual or spiritual."
Pope Benedict XVI, Speech to Catholic Educators, Washington, D.C., 17 April 2008.
During the vacation months, a sacred time for holidays, a good number of our parishioners will
probably be participating in Holy Mass in other parishes. We invite you to use your envelopes
anywhere in the diocese Alexandria/ Cornwall and they will come back to us. We hope that you will
not forget your parish during the vacation time. Summer or not, expenses continue. And we must
be able to depend on “its entire people” for support. Thank you for you cooperation.
