ROME, Italy (LifeSiteNews) — LETTER ABOUT THE RECENT IMPOSITION OF THE MANDATORY VACCINATION IN SOME AMERICAN DIOCESES
We have all learned that in some Dioceses of the United States of America, and in particular in the Archdiocese of Chicago, the Ecclesiastical Authority is mandating its clerics and faithful employees to be vaccinated as a condition for attending celebrations, liturgical activities, and pastoral [work] and even for the mere fact of being priests with a ministry. Similar despotic measures are also imposed in Italy and other countries.
Priests who do not comply with the provisions of the Ordinary will be deprived of their priestly faculties and means of subsistence. Consequently, many churches will be closed, with very serious damage to the salus animarum, due to the lack of clerics who can replace those who will not be injected with the experimental gene serum.
