I was all set (for the sake of the nursing home residents) to get the vaccine after much prayer, but then my investigative wife found an 9-month-old article whose implications made me realize how evil the agenda really is, and puts those who have been vaccinated in great peril. How despicable! Fortunately, my Bishop has agreed that Catholics must be free to refuse the vaccine according to their conscience. However, wait until one of his deacons explains that such a personal stand will cost him a chaplain since New York State is requiring the vaccine for one such as me to serve in hospital or nursing home. It's late tonight, but I'll use this thread tomorrow to explain my decision which will have a direct impact on ministry and income. For those of you who have taken the vaccine, it will at a minimum anger and/or frighten you and maybe put you in a state of denial. My intent is not to alienate you, but convince the unvaccinated to remain so. I care for you all! Safe in the Refuge of the Immaculate Heart!
