MESSAGE FROM FR ANTHONY

As our state has just attained a 70% rate of first vaccinations it is a promising sign for the future. Whether we are permitted to open when our state is fully vaxxed at 70% or 80% remains to be seen. So obviously the more who are vaccinated the earlier these lockdowns will come to an end and we can get back together at Mass. There are a number of issues being discussed among government and health officials regarding the possibility of only allowing those who are fully vaccinated to enter places of gathering, such as sporting precincts, entertainment venues, cultural centres and even possibly places of worship. Though the Church is in general pro-vaccination, it also makes it clear, like other medical treatments, Covid vaccination must be voluntary. But we also must remember we do have a moral obligation to protect our health, and also a duty to safeguard the health and wellbeing of others. Some people have raised the issue about the morality of the production of some of the vaccines, such as using material from the cell lines of aborted foetuses. In December 2021 the Congregation for Faith and Morals, and further authorised by Pope Francis, reassured the faithful that they may receive the vaccination without morally co-operating with the killing of children from whom they are sourced. So putting it plainly, there are no religious or ethical reasons not to be vaccinated. If people have an underlying medical condition then of course consult your doctor about what you might do or avoid. The message is simple - the earlier people are vaccinated, the earlier we can return to Mass. For further references please see below. For a very accurate summary please see the joint letter written by Fr Michael McCaffrey (formerly a medical practitioner) and Fr John Fleming (a bioethicist), attached below.
