A good priest friend of ours sent me this wonderful video this morning, by Father Michael Copenhagen, who appears to be an Eastern Rite Catholic priest. The quotes that follow were complied by our priest friend.
I put the word vaccines in single quotes in the title of this posting because it is my understanding that, scientifically speaking, the experimental mRNA gene therapies being touted by Big Pharma and Big Government as “vaccines” are not at all so in the actual scientific understanding of that term.
Some principles to consider while pondering this issue:
Anomalies do matter very much, and do a great deal of harm; abstract illogicalities do matter a great deal, and do a great deal of harm: and this for a reason that anyone at all acquainted with human nature can see for himself. All injustice begins in the mind: and anomalies accustom the mind to the idea of unreason and untruth. Suppose I had by some prehistoric law the power of forcing every man in Battersea to nod his head three times before he got out of bed: the practical politicians might say that this power was a harmless anomaly, that it was not a grievance. It could do my subjects no harm; it could do me no good. The people of Battersea, they would say, might safely submit to it; but the people of Battersea could not safely submit to it, for all that. If I had nodded their heads for them for fifty years, I could cut off their heads for them at the end of it with immeasurably greater ease; for there would have permanently sunk into every man’s mind the notion that it was a natural thing for me to have a fantastic and irrational power. They would have grown accustomed to insanity. – G.K. Chesterton, from All Things Considered
Let the Abbot not disorder the flock committed to him, nor by an arbitrary use of his power dispose of anything unjustly; but let him bear in mind that he will have to give an account to God of all his judgements and works. – The Rule of Saint Benedict, Chapter LXIII
Human law is law only in virtue of its accordance with right reason: and thus it is manifest that it flows from the eternal law. And insofar as it deviates from right reason it is called an unjust law; in such case it is not law at all, but rather a species of violence. – (St. Thomas Aquinas, ST, I-II, Q93, art.3, ad 2.)
The truth has set bounds. But evil and falsehood multiplies without end; and the more these (evils) are pursued, the more errors they produce. — St. Hierom (Jerome)
Not to oppose error, is to approve of it, and not to defend truth is to suppress it, and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them. — Pope Felix III
He who can correct any evil, and neglects to do it, makes himself accessory to the same. — St. Gregory
He that sees another in error, and endeavors not to correct it, testifies himself to be in error. — Pope Leo I
We seek no conquest over our adversaries; but only that truth may overcome falsehood. — St. Hierom
It is better that scandal arise than that truth be concealed. — St. Gregory the Great
