From a reader about priests and popes who are jabbed and what we are to think and do about that:
- “Conundrum: How do those who do not wish to receive the vaccine for ‘religious’ reasons explain to their non Catholic (and Catholic) friends when Pope Francis, the Pope Emeritus, their Bishops and their parish priests have all received the vaccine?”
Jesus was really disgusted that Judas betrayed the Son of Man with a kiss. Must we further the disgust of Jesus by also betraying him? People have free will, also priests and popes have free will. Just because they may choose to do something against Jesus in the least of the brethren doesn’t mean we are to take scandal and follow that bad and evil example.
Since when does someone else’s (objective) sin give me permission to sin as well? Leaning on that at the judgment will be a ticket to hell.
Priests and popes are not infallible in committing sin. No.
