Excerpt from Religious Instruction in School-Board Schools For whilst the Act forbids the catechism, it Obviously necessitates catechizing, and in thus forcing on public attention the very great difference between a living process and stiff subject-matter, and how the one by itself is a deadly letter, the other a quick spirit, a real service may have been rendered to religious teaching altogether. Let us dwell on this distinction for a moment, for it is very momentous if what has been advanced is at all true. The educational mistake, which finds its illustration perhaps most signally in teaching the Catechism as it is very often learnt and taught, is the radical mis take of making amount of knowledge, instead of discipline of mind, the end of primary instruction. It cannot, from the nature of the patient, attain that end of large knowledge acquired, and so, with great detriment to agent and patient, it becomes communi cation on one side, repetition on the other, without interest, and without real gain.
