Abp. Viganò Releases Letter He Sent to US Bishops and CDF on Vaccine Quandary

Editor’s Note: Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has released an October 23, 2021 letter he sent to the U.S. Bishops through Archbishop José Gómez and to Cardinal Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), as well as to Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, former Prefect for the CDF.

Archbishop Viganò asks his fellow bishops to reconsider the Note issued last year by the CDF about the moral question of receiving the so-called COVID-19 vaccines that are connected with abortion. He urges the bishops to speak collegially in a way that is in “conformity with the Magisterium of the Church and not influenced by biased information or by erroneous news spread by the producers of these drugs or by the media.” He points out that last year’s Note was issued “in the absence of complete data on both the nature of the gene serum and its components.”

His Grace questions the conclusions the Note reached last year because it did not engage in one of the required elements of moral analysis: proportionality. He explains:

“Limiting itself to an evaluation only of the morality of the use of the vaccines, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith does not take into account the proportionality between the presumed benefits of the gene serum and the short- term and long-term adverse side effects.”

Based upon the documented concerns over safety and efficacy, Archbishop Viganò concludes there is no proportionality that would permit the cooperation with the evil of abortion: “This means therefore that there is a grave moral obligation to refuse inoculation as a possible and proximate cause of permanent damages or death.” He calls on U.S. Bishops that have worked to prevent their flock from obtaining a religious exemption to the so-called vaccines to reverse course and help their sheep obtain such exemptions so they are not threatened with a loss of their livelihood for defending the Church’s condemnation of abortion and protecting their own health and life. He concludes:

“The Catholic Church has the duty before God and all of humanity to denounce this tremendous and horrible crime with the utmost firmness, giving clear directions and taking a stand against those who, in the name of a pseudo-science subservient to the interests of the pharmaceutical companies and the globalist elite, have only intentions of death.”
