Commentary on the Theology of Martina Cassidy by Mike Garde BD, MA in Theology.
The purpose of this response is not primarily a theological one, but rather to address the cultist dimension which Ms Cassidy seems to have missed. Also in the absence of any official Catholic theological response we feel the need to enter this debate. Continue reading

A Father’s Love by
- ISBN: 9781908024374
The author is a young woman in her late 20′s who lives in Co. Meath.
She was raised a Catholic and still has a strong belief in the Catholic faith. Like many others, she questioned her faith in her teenage years. After several spiritual experiences she sought the answers to her doubts by reading more deeply into the beliefs of the Catholic Church in order for her to see if she accepted and agreed with these beliefs. It was in her examination of the beliefs of the Catholic Church that she found an enriched and fulfilling basis for the love of God that she wished to express in her life. She started to practice her faith with a deeper knowledge and love of God as she now understood the reasoning and spirituality behind the beliefs and practices she had been taught in the Catholic Church. She completed an honours degree in Communication Studies in 2005 during which she wrote a thesis examining the attitudes of young people towards the Catholic Church. She found a lack of knowledge and misunderstanding of the beliefs of the Catholic Church and wished to instruct others to correct this. From 2006 until 2008 she wrote monthly articles in a traditional Catholic magazine, The Hibernian Magazine, on the beliefs of the Catholic faith. These articles were well received by the readers and upon the closure of the magazine she decided to write A Father’s Love in continuation of her work. She is seeking to correct the misconceptions surrounding the beliefs of the Catholic faith, especially among her fellow youth, in response to a call by the late Pope John Paul II who asked young people to go out and evangelise their fellow youth in the joys of the Catholic faith.
She recently was awarded the MA in Theology by Mater Dei Institute, DCU. She published a book in 2011
God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him – We love because he first loved us.A” 1 John 4: 16, 19 God the Father loves us deeply and unconditionally. He sent us His Son Jesus Christ to show us His love for us. Through His coming to earth as a Man and through His death on the Cross, Jesus fulfilled the hope of the Jewish religion and laid the foundations for His Church on earth. This faith has been handed down to us through the Apostles led by St. Peter, the Rock, and his successors in the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. It is in this Catholic faith that God shows us His love through the sacraments, graces and blessings He has bestowed on us. In this book, the central beliefs of the Catholic faith are explained and we see how the love of God for us and our love for Him shine through in these beliefs. This book is a stepping stone to those who wish to begin their study of the beliefs of the Catholic Church. It is a guide to those who are seeking the Truth in the hope that it will awaken a desire to learn more. It is the voice of a young Catholic speaking to the young and young at heart of the joys and love of God that exist in the Catholic faith. The consciousness that, in Christ, God has given himself for us, even unto death, must inspire us to live no longer for ourselves but for him, and, with him, for others. Whoever loves Christ loves the Church, and desires the Church to be increasingly the image and instrument of the love which flows from Christ.A” Deus Caritas Est, Pope Benedict XVI

Here we have the post seminar Educospeak which tries to give the impression that Quinn has been the author of great results. This was sent to us by a former Educoist who has had their life destroyed by getting involved with Quinn. We believe we have a duty in the public interest to publish this letter.
What we have here is a self serving routinised special language for insiders to have the programme installed! In practice what it boils down to is that Quinn is a leach* living off the wealth of the oil company who have been programmed to believe Quinn is the source of the find. Continue reading
Kevin was one of the success stories Quinn used to use to promote his Educo system. He is in total denial to the total collapse of his devotees. Many are struggling but Tony keeps rabbiting on about SUCCESS?
Kevin’s testimony has gone missing?
Here is one of his last comments on Educo, not one in 3 years?
Back in EducoGYM after a month off. Even though I have trained in other gyms, nothing makes your body work like educo. Walking may be hard!!
We published earlier reports that Ruth Moram who wished to remain a Jehovah’s Witness but could not find vindication within the movement and had failed at the High Court level is now seeking a solution at the Supreme Court level in regard to defamation and due process. At stake is the notion of disfellowshipping which is word devised by the JW’s to not so much nowadays deal with moral or theological heresy and other lapses of morality, but rather it is used as a tool of ideological control. In Catholic thought there exists the notion of excommunication but as Catholic ecclesiology confuses the church with the world, e.g. the wheat and the weeds grow together, it is rarely used.
A short reading of Matthew 18
15 ‘If your brother does something wrong, go and have it out with him alone, between your two selves. If he listens to you, you have won back your brother.
Note the purpose of discipline is restorative and is supposed to lead to treating the person as if they were no longer a disciple, but then how did Jesus treat people like that. He socialised with them and won them over. It is a loving open process, not an ugly exclusion strategy and control function whereby the person is treated like dirt.
