“In our Catholic approach to things, we’re not just on about what I want or what’s best for me or what my rights are,” he said.
“We have a fundamental principle that we make decisions on the basis of what’s right for the common good.
“This is clearly right for the common good…”
Archbishop Costelloe acknowledged some within the Church would have different views, but that the official stance was clear.
“The important thing for us, by having this here, is to indicate what the formal position of the archdiocese is,” he said.
“Individual people might have difficulties with that position, but it is the formal position of the Church.”
It was a tad clumsy of the Archbishop to undermine his own theme by saying the “important thing” about the clinic is the cajoling. Of course, there is no “common good” in compulsory vaccination of non-endangered, healthy people. That would be hostile to the common good. Nor does the Catholic Church have an “official stance” or “formal position” stipulating that everyone must be vaccinated to avoid the punitive vendettas of the state. The Holy See’s statement on this subject unequivocally prohibits mandates. The Archbishop is enabling something immoral in its context, is profaning his cathedral and is bowing to a government that legalised the murder of the elderly this year. Even by the caesaropapist standards of the Australian hierarchy, that’s quite a trifecta.
Costelloe, like Coleridge, did his seminary studies around the 70s, when instruction was generally very poor. A sickly harvest followed. There are signs that the young generation of clergy are more orthodox than the 70s seminarians, whose attitudes and teachings might be quickly consigned to the dustbin of history once they are out of power. One might even dare to hope for bishops that genuflect to Christ rather than to the world.
His Excellency, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò: MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE
…do not follow those of your Pastors who have betrayed the mandate they have received from Our Lord, who impose iniquitous orders on you or who remain silent before the evidence of an unheard of crime against God and humanity
For two years now, a global coup has been carried out all over the world, planned for some time by an elite group of conspirators enslaved to the interests of international high finance. This coup was made possible by an emergency pandemic that is based on the premise of a virus that has a mortality rate almost analogous to that of any other seasonal flu virus, on the delegitimization and prohibition of effective treatments, and on the distribution of an experimental gene serum which is obviously ineffective, and which also clearly carries with it the danger of serious and even lethal side effects.
We all know how much the mainstream media has contributed to supporting the insane pandemic narrative, the interests that are at stake, and the goals of these groups of power: reducing the world population, making those who survive chronically ill, and imposing forms of control that violate the fundamental rights and natural liberties of citizens.
And yet, two years after this grotesque farce started, which has claimed more victims than a war and destroyed the social fabric, national economies, and the very foundations of the rule of law, nothing has changed in the policies of Nations and their response to the so-called pandemic
Today more and more people are opening their eyes and beginning to understand that the emergency pandemic and the “ecological emergency” are part of a criminal plan hatched by the World Economic Forum, the UN, the WHO, and a galaxy of organizations and foundations that are ideologically characterized as clearly anti-human and – this needs to be said clearly – anti-Christian.
One of the elements that unequivocally confirms the criminal nature of the Great Reset is the perfect synchrony with which all the different Nations are acting, demonstrating the existence of a single script under a single direction.
…Political and religious leaders, representatives of the people, scientists and doctors, journalists and those who work in the media have literally betrayed their people, their laws, their Constitutions, and the most basic ethical principles.
The electoral fraud of the 2020 presidential election against President Trump has shown itself to be organic to this global operation, because in order to impose illegitimate restrictions in violation of the principles of law it was necessary to be able to make use of an American President who would support the psycho-pandemic and support its narrative. The Democratic Party, part of the deep state, is carrying out its task as an accomplice of the system, just as the deep church finds in Bergoglio its own propagandist…”
Wow. That’s a tour de force.
Thank you for posting, Howard.
