"When one proudly dons a U.S. Military uniform, there is only one religious symbol: the American flag. There is only one religious scripture: the American Constitution. Finally, there is only one religious faith: American patriotism."

As a Catholic, I have the greatest respect for Archbishop Broglio, his service to the church and his flock. Nothing in my views on vaccines changes that.
Over time there have been many controversies over many different vaccines. These are certainly personal opinions and decisions.
However, just as our conversation toward one another, and ability to work through disagreements has changed (unfortunately for the worse), our communication style has something in common with vaccinations; that being the general unwillingness to consider others. Pope Francis has urged all Catholics to get vaccinated. To protect all, as an act of love. Pope Francis has called this a lifesaving and an ethical obligation. Do we not “violate the sanctity of conscience” when we do not consider the most vulnerable? In the matter of vaccines, consider the words of the Pope Francis, and the value of considering others in all things; from vaccines to daily communications and conflict resolution.
