(LifeSiteNews) — The former Society of St. Pius X district superior of France has condemned the use of abortion-tainted COVID vaccines and called Catholics to seriously consider the moral implications of receiving the jabs, warning of potential direct cooperation with evil.
In a statement published in French Catholic review Civitas entitled Non Possumus, Fr. Regis de Cacqueray, the former SSPX district superior of France, now a Capuchin monk, provided a detailed explanation of the production process for COVID vaccines and invited Catholics to reflect on the moral permissibility of receiving the jabs.
Fr. Regis de Cacqueray, now known as Fr. Joseph, started by giving details regarding the HEK-293 cell lines in the production and development of the mRNA vaccines were obtained and used. He listed the number and gravity of sins, past, present, and future, involved in the process.
Among the past sins listed were the actual abortion, vivisection of human beings, deprivation of both earthly life and the beatific vision for the aborted fetuses, theft, and usurpation of organs. For present sins, he listed fencing and illegitimate exploitation of human cells, cooperation in the industrialization of the human body, and injection of a vaccine containing human debris. And finally, as a potential future sin, de Cacqueray mentioned encouraging the vicious circle of creating new fetal cell lines.
The Capuchin acknowledged that “ordinarily unlawful, distant material and mediate cooperation can sometimes be lawful for proportionately serious reason,” but went on to question whether this applies to receiving the COVID vaccines.
He stressed the necessity of establishing the existence of a proportionate reason for receiving the HEK-293 vaccine, and establishing that the connection to evil is indeed “distant” or “mediate” as opposed to “immediate.”
“We must ask ourselves if the acceptance of receiving a vaccine that contains DNA fragments does not constitute a material but immediate cooperation with that ‘unspeakable’ sin that consists in accepting that man becomes a ‘consumer’ of elements of the human body derived from crime,” he wrote.
It's official: Joe Biden has announced that his Administration will be forcing COVID vaccinations on nearly 1/3rd of American citizens, blatantly disregarding the personal objections of millions of people and moving America ever closer towards a medical dictatorship.
We cannot stand for this unprecedented overreach, and we will not submit to Biden's tyrannical public coercion efforts.
Please SIGN this urgent petition informing the President that you will NOT comply with these unconstitutional vaccine mandate orders issued by the Biden Administration, and that elected officials should act in their capacity to block these intrusive demands.
On Thursday, September 9th, Joe Biden announced the latest round of federal orders meant to further coerce large swaths of the public into getting the COVID vaccine -- many against their will.
While the legal standing of these measures is, at best, dubious, the Biden Administration appears more ready than ever to gut our individual rights and practically erase medical autonomy in our country.
This latest escalation in overreach was announced via a televised speech in which Biden outlined a new "six-point plan" that includes far more than just six avenues to achieve mass medical compliance.
Among the most egregious new federal mandates are the following:
- A requirement that all private businesses employing more than 100 people mandate their workers get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing (to be implemented by way of a new Department of Labor rule)
- A requirement that all federal employees and federal contractors get the COVID vaccine
- A requirement that all healthcare workers in facilities that receive reimbursement from Medicare and/or Medicaid (an estimated 17 million) get the Covid-19 vaccine without an alternative testing option
- A requirement that all Head Start teachers get the COVID vaccine
- A federal effort to lobby states to implement vaccine mandates for all school employees, and require regular testing of all students and school staff
- A federal effort to lobby entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination or testing in order to grant entry to the public
- A continuation of mask mandates on all federal properties and during interstate travel (i.e. planes, trains, buses)
All in all, these new vaccine mandates, which will go into effect within the coming weeks, will affect an estimated 100 million American workers -- 2/3rds of the entire workforce!
And, according to an administration official, violations of these unconstitutional requirements could result in fines of up to $14,000.
While this is clearly a political ploy on the part of the Joe Biden and his team of power-hungry Washington insiders to shift the focus from their disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the American public knows better: After nearly a year and a half's worth of arbitrary, ever-changing, and unconstitutional government mandates in response to the COVID outbreak, it was always a given that the Biden Administration would ramp things up even further when it behooved them.
And now, it would seem that time has officially come.
"This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden uttered in his remarks, confirming his administration's blatant dismissal of all Americans' right(s) to accept or decline the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.
This is a stunning reversal from Biden's declaration last December that "I don’t think [the vaccine] should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory."
In fact, Biden even confirmed his intention to flout states' rights in the process, warning that "If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way."
These are not the words of an "empathetic" leader; these are the words of an aspiring dictator. And, for the time being, the only way to stop Joe Biden's tyranny is through mass noncompliance.
As we've said from the beginning, science, basic logic, and common sense should dictate policy regarding COVID and the Delta variant.
But Joe Biden and the federal government have long abandoned those principles throughout this crisis, culminating into this disturbing yet inevitable flurry of intrusive vaccine mandates that use people's jobs, individual autonomy, and livelihood as leverage.
This assault on our individual rights, private businesses, and American workers cannot be tolerated, and the easiest way to combat these unlawful orders is to just say NO.
Please SIGN and SHARE this most important petition letting Joe Biden know that you will NOT comply with the unconstitutional medical demands being made by this administration, and that action should be taken to block any intrusive action against working Americans and private employers.

The priest listed five criteria to make that determination:
- The gravity of the sins with which we are connected, either those that have been committed or those that continue to be committed.
- The evaluation of the scandal caused by the acceptance of the vaccine.
- The evaluation of the proximity of the consent to the vaccine with the sins listed.
- (and 5.) The hope of avoiding the sin if one does not enter into connection with it and the more or less strict duty to prevent it.
He concluded that the moral cooperation with evil in accepting to receive the mRNA vaccines might be less distant than some have suggested and argued that even if this wasn’t the case, Catholics should still feel encouraged to stand up against this evil following the examples of the saints.
While acknowledging that “individual refusal to receive the vaccine will not prevent the laboratories from continuing to develop their immoral activity [which] we feel quite powerless to oppose,” he also argued that “this realization should not lead us to the perverse reasoning that it is useless to oppose it and to suffer all the damage that may result from it.”
Stressing that point even further, he wrote that “each one of us must act according to his conscience formed according to the divine law and not commit what is evil, even if he is the only one in the world to oppose it … the heroic example that it would give, has in reality an incomparable exemplary scope as the history of heroes and saints shows.”
Fr. de Cacqueray also gave a message of encouragement to Catholics and pointed out that they might not be as powerless as they think in this struggle, as resistance to the vaccine mandates has proven a major setback in the propagation of evil.
“A courageous refusal is already shaking the system and helping to weaken the Goliath of iniquity that challenges the Catholic world.”
