We certainly respect everyones freedom to follow their own conscience. We also respect individuals opinions. This is shared that we may be able to form the right conscience for ourselves and respect others freedom, health and safety.
Q. “They are injecting micro-chip in your body?”
A. Micro-chip can not be injected into your body with a 1 mL, 3 mL, or 5 mL syringes and needles that range from 22 to 25 gauge which are commonly used in the administration of COVID vaccine.
Q. “They are injecting virus in your body” “They are changing our DNA – genetically modified children will be born in the future”
A. How true are these claims? Is there any medical evidence to these claims? We need to trust the doctors and scientists in these matters. Not everyone in the world will be lying or corrupt or bribed by the corporates. The vaccines can’t give you COVID-19 because they don’t contain the virus that causes it. The vaccines also can’t change your DNA.
Q. Health Canada has not approved any vaccines as clinical trails are not over by 2023.
A. Only vaccines that are proven to be safe, effective and of high quality are authorized for use in Canada. The COVID-19 vaccines have been rigorously tested during their development and then carefully reviewed by Health Canada.
Q. My conscience does not allow these vaccines.
A. Conscience helps us hear the voice of God; it helps us recognize the truth about God and the truth about how we ought to live. Conscience is “a judgment of reason”(Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2nd. ed., 1778.) by which we determine whether an action is right or wrong.
Without a foundational, practical formation, it is difficult for our consciences to guide us well in concrete situations. As Catholics, we have the immense gift of the teaching authority of the Catholic Church and can turn to it for help forming our consciences. For example, learning about Christian moral principles, reading the Catechism of the Catholic Church, or researching what the Church says about a challenging teaching will help us grow in knowledge of the truth. In turn, this helps us understand a little more how to live in a way that leads to our true happiness. Having a well-formed conscience doesn’t mean we have all the answers to the complex problems in the world, but it does mean that we are sensitive to the needs and struggles of other people.
Q. Vaccines are sourced from aborted fetus.
A. Even if a vaccine is sourced from cell lines distantly derived from aborted human fetuses, which is an evil act according to Catholic teaching, the bishops say taking that vaccine is morally permissible given the remoteness of the recipient from the original act of abortion, the scarcity of ethical alternatives, and the grave threat that COVID-19 poses to public health.

Q. What is the official teaching of the church?

Questions to Help Form our Conscience in the Context of COVID-19 Vaccination
Let us not give into the temptation of spiritual pride by trying to be holier than the Holy Father but work for the good of all with true charity. Let us be compassionate and understanding towards our overwhelmed health workers and with everyone with whom we come into contact everyday of our life.
