VACCINES: Bishop Athanasius Schneider Presents the Catholic Position

New from Remnant TV...

This week, seven hundred healthcare workers at the Mayo Clinic lost their jobs for being noncompliant with the Biden Administration’s vaccine mandate. Many of these former “frontline heroes” objected on moral grounds, due to the connection between Covid vaccines and aborted fetal tissue.

In the pages of The Remnant, we have been running The Good Cop Files which tell the stories of Catholic police officers who’ve lost their jobs for refusing to take an abortion-tainted vaccine.


But not everyone agrees. Even some traditional Catholics priests argue that these would-be heroes are merely misinformed, and that there is no need to take such a strong stand against these vaccines.

Obviously, this is one of the most pressing issues of the day, since it involves life-and-death decisions, questions of employment, travel, healthcare, etc. Catholics need strong moral guidance, in other words, from their priests and theologians, especially since global laws may soon require vaccine passports for all.

In this video, Michael Matt directly challenges Bishop Athanasius Schneider on his position on this question, arguing that His Excellency may be showing a lack of due concern for human life by taking the strong stand he has.

Bishop Schneider’s answer is truly epic in its fidelity to the sensus Catholicus so sorely lacking from this now international debate from the Vatican to the pulpits. 

Watch the Bishop's talk at the Catholic Identity Conference (November 2021) by signing up for the recorded conference here.
