We recently had a complaint from someone who works in a public school about the way BrainPOP, an animated educational site for children, is presenting material to students, particularly a video about the Mexican Day of the Dead that promotes paganism at the expense of the Church.

A reader sent this email to our blog: “My therapist has a strong Catholic presence throughout her clinic and plays EWTN for me while I work out on the treadmill and bicycle. She attends daily noon Mass. She “sees” my deceased aunt hovering behind me and said Aunt I. has a concerned look on her face. I showed her several pics of deceased relatives and she picked out Aunt I. Once when talking to me during a rest period she excused herself and walked out of the room for a few minutes…like she had to recover from what she ‘saw’ around me. I was too scared to ask and she did not volunteer any information. Should I continue working with her or do you think she is new age?”
