If your local bishop, the bishops’ conference, the Vatican, and moral theology principles from the Fathers & Doctors disagree whether an act is moral, discernment is in order. If all agree, or most agree & others are silent, we should listen. There is no way to go astray following the Church. This is all the more true when there is agreement both locally and universally, both now and historically.

Are these the wonderful Bishops we should listen to, Father? Our silent, supine shepherds are virtually all on the road to perdition and would have us follow them:

I think it is operative to ask if the vatican today represents Catholicism and the Church. It is clearly obvious that generally the vatican and average bishops today represent the errors of Russia and are no longer practicing Catholics. By their fruits you will know them.

In some things, yes, in others never. They say to go to the protestant Novus Ordo, I say , never.

I don't think so, Father, this is our church as much as it is theirs or yours, and the laity is tired of cowardly and corrupt bishops and priests. You want the jab, you take the jab. My body my choice.

@Fr Matthew P Schneider LC Here's the result of a Bishop insisting we take the vaccine...and yet, you insist 1) there's no danger from the vaccine and 2) we should do what our Bishops say.

Sorry, our Bishops are NOT our medical advisors; nor are they even remotely qualified to give medical advice.

Most of our Bishops are not even qualified to give spiritual advice.

@Fr Matthew P Schneider LC I will NEVER listen to my Bishop; all he does is:

1) welcome LGBTQ groups who have absolutely no intention of changing their life style into his Cathedral with warm embraces and SILENCE on their perversions -- ALLOWING THEM TO CELEBRATE A SACRILEGIOUS MASS and HOLY COMMUNION -- no invitation to convert, no admonition about the reality of Hell and the consequences of …More
@Fr Matthew P Schneider LC I will NEVER listen to my Bishop; all he does is:

1) welcome LGBTQ groups who have absolutely no intention of changing their life style into his Cathedral with warm embraces and SILENCE on their perversions -- ALLOWING THEM TO CELEBRATE A SACRILEGIOUS MASS and HOLY COMMUNION -- no invitation to convert, no admonition about the reality of Hell and the consequences of their choices and their public scandal....a scandal which he only exacerbates

2) oppose the Bishops' decision to issue a public statement -- completely in accord with Canon Law -- that Democrat politicians who openly support abortion should be refused Holy Communion;

3) issue Voting Guidance that virtually directed Catholics to vote for Biden in the last election -- a politician who has used his career to support abortion rights

4) Lobby to continue the floods of illegal immigrants pouring into our country (which is contrary to Catholic Social Teaching, Saint Thomas Aquinas on the rights of a country to defend its borders, etc., etc.)

5) everything except the true Catholic Faith.

And he's supposed to be an authority for us....?

Our Bishops are traitors.....

We don't need to listen to our Bishops, Father -- we discern by directing our consciences according to 2,000 years of solid, unchanging Catholic Magisterium.

Father, you are 50 years too late to the scene -- we have watched the "Hierarchy" destroy our Church's Patrimony for decades, replacing it with lies, moral confusion, tacitly approved sacrilege, marxism and subterfuge. They no longer have our confidence or trust in anything; nor are they worthy of it. Period.

I won't be listening to my prelate. The Cardinal of our Archdiocese was asked on two separate occasions on his YouTube channel about whether it was OK to take the jab produced in fetal cell lines and he encouraged everyone to take it EVEN THOUGH my country gives you an option of another vaccine which has no association to fetal cell lines i.e. the second approved vaccine is not produced/…More

In the second instance, he was specifically asked about the morally acceptable vaccine and he recommended the abortion tainted vaccine instead. Moreover, he himself has taken the abortion tainted vaccine and so have most of the clergy. Catholic parishes and hospitals have chosen to promote the abortion tainted vaccine instead of the vaccine which is not abortion tainted. Meanwhile, the politicians at the highest levels of govt, celebrities, and super rich are taking the morally acceptable vaccine even though they are not Catholic.

Yes I would like to hear some official teaching from the Bishops it would be interesting. Usually all we get is democrat talking points and how we really can't do anything against the evil in this world!
Fr Matthew P Schneider LC
Oh, yes, abortion is evil and should be illegal is a Democrat talking point. Really?
123jussi
If the Bishops were really anti abortion they could have stopped it years age! And yes the talking point is the old Mario Coumo stick,ie I am personally opposed but and of course there is the seamless garment nonsense and the anti death penalty nonsense,no nearly all the Boshops are good democrats.

"One US bishop even got vaccinated publicly to demonstrate that it is moral and to encourage others."

Actually, a bishop getting the experimental injection publicly does not prove the morality of the injection. In fact, Cardinal Blase Cupich from the Archdiocese of Chicago took the injection publicly and he is an outspoken promoter of homosexuality. He went so far as to threaten a priest who was forced into hiding because the priest removed a pride flag placed over the cross at the altar of a church.

"So, please, listen to the bishops over you and get vaccinated, it is for your own health and the health of those around you."

The Covid injection materials are experimental and have never been tested for biological mechanisms in the body. The injections do not prevent severe illness, hospitalization or death caused from the virus. They do not prevent transmission of the virus. They use technology never before shown to reduce or eliminate any infectious disease.

Since so many of the bishops are so highly in favor of the experimental injection, are these bishops willing to start a fund to help with medical costs of those injured or permanently damaged from the experimental injections? Perhaps you should recommend that to them.

As I've pointed out before, the reason the bishops are so highly in favor of the experimental injection and promoting it so fiercely is so they do not lose their public funding and their tax exempt status.

"The Church and related Catholic charities and schools have collected more than $1.6 billion since 2012 in U.S. contracts and grants in a far-reaching relationship that spans from school lunches for grammar school students to contracts...a Washington Times review of federal spending records shows."

~Kelly Riddell – The Washington Times

The American people and people around the world are being maimed and disabled by an injection that has nothing to do with health and nothing to do with saving us from any kind of viral infection.

Are the Bishops saying something? I missed it!
