Clergy not doubly vaccinated are failing in their duty to care for the faithful… In the circumstances of the pandemic, clergy engaged in pastoral ministry who are not doubly vaccinated put the faithful of the parish at risk.”
– Archbishop of Brisbane, Mark Coleridge, understands the politics but not the science
Priests and deacons who don’t present their vaccination papers to the Archbishop by 15 December will be forced to “stand aside.” Auxiliary Bishop Ken Howell has also ordered every lay employee of the Archdiocese – including groundsmen – to furnish proof of two doses or “provide evidence of a medical condition that prevents vaccination” by the same date. The report doesn’t indicate whether non-compliant staff will also be sacked. This is a thuggish violation of no.5 of the Holy See’s Note on the morality of covid vaccination.
What a utter disgrace and moral vacuum the Archbishop is.
I was muzzled from their Plenary Council Facebook Group because my traditional views didn’t agree with the leftist voices appointed to run that Plenary Council.
I don’t know if it’s funny, ironic or creepy, but I get giant ads for funeral services on that article talking about the vaccine ‘deadline’.
That’s not surprising, sadly:
Australia’s bishops have voted to continue on their current downward trajectory by re-electing Abp. Mark Coleridge of Brisbane to a second, two-year term as president of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference (ACBC), leading some Catholics to wonder just how much damage will be done to the Church in Australia……
On the agenda for discussion are the ordination of women, distributing Holy Communion to non-Catholics and supporting so-called same-sex marriage.
A word-cloud graphic on the website for the council includes phrases such as “Communion for all,” “Support same-sex marriage,” “End discrimination of LGBTQ,” “Ordaining married men to be priests,” “Ordination of women,” “Modernize Church teachings” and a slew of other such phrases…….
Coleridge talked about the Church finding its own voice in discussions on climate change
Australian bishops appointed Lana Turvey-Collins to be national facilitator for the Plenary Council. Turvey-Collins, however, promotes same-sex “marriage.”
She reportedly peppered her social media accounts with rainbow flag images in 2017, removing them only after the country’s bishops appointed her facilitator.
Lying so blatantly is not a good look. Nor is betraying individual conscience, which is explicitly covered in the Bible.
Between Covid and climate rubbish some of our shepherds are going to have a hard time explaining their behaviour to their boss, when they come before Him.
Clergy not doubly vaccinated are failing in their duty to care for the faithful
[five minutes later] Er, clergy who haven’t had their booster are failing…
[ten minutes later] Clergy who haven’t had their second booster…
Long after Trump is gone, his enemies continue to reveal themselves.
Indeed, we are living through a time of revelations.
