Msgr. Charles Pope – Conscience, COVID Vaccines and the Common Good. Emily Mentock tells us all about FemCatholic.
Segment 1 – Intro and News
Segment 2 & 3 – Conscience, COVID Vaccines and the Common Good
“We have come to a new chapter in the COVID-19 crisis and conflict that has gripped our Church, this nation and the world. The new chapter involves vaccinations, and the increasing mandates to receive them “or else.” The price of refusal ranges from the irritating weekly testing to fines, and all the way to job termination and banishment from places of trade and restaurants.” Msgr. Charles Pope joins us.
Monsignor Charles Pope was ordained a priest in 1989 for the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. He is a well-known blogger and writer, and has authored a question and answer column for Our Sunday Visitor since 2013. He gives numerous retreats and talks for laity and clergy.
