The point is that a "Covid-19 vaccinated" person has no legitimate right to ask or insist that a non-vaccinated person receive the "vaccine".

The point is that a "Covid-19 vaccinated" person has no legitimate right to ask or insist that a non-vaccinated person receive the "vaccine".

Imagine that you are unvaccinated and some vaccinated person is insisting that you should get vaccinated. You then pose the top question to them. If they answer "Yes", then your getting vaccinated would not benefit them. If they answer "No", then getting vaccinated is of no value, and your getting vaccinated would not benefit them. In either case, your getting vaccinated does not benefit them and hence they have no right or reason to insist.

Whether you are or are not obliged to attend your more nearby NO Mass, think about what you are saying. Regardless of how distasteful you may find it, as you write, it is still a valid Mass. That is, Our Lord still comes to us in the consecration, and He is there.

"Sorry, Lord Jesus, my distaste for this trite, banal service they now call 'Mass' is much greater than my love for you, so...you'll just have to go along without me. Even though you, the God and Lord of the universe, of all things seen and unseen (created by you, by the way), are willing to come inside of me and both spiritually and physically be within me, I just can't get over the fear that somehow my faith will be damaged, so, I'll just take a pass on your offer. Maybe next time. See you around Easter for sure!"

Amish Covid - Full Measure. When it comes to actions taken to address the Covid-19 threat, hindsigh…

Some people call steps in the right direction "evangelism".

MANY things don't suit you, Ultraviolet (including directly contradicting St. Alphonus's theology, as well as CONSISTENTLY stating the obvious as if somehow thought is unique to you), but somehow none of that ever seems to stop you.

Amish Covid - Full Measure. When it comes to actions taken to address the Covid-19 threat, hindsigh…

There are many uncanny parallels between Amish practices and traditional Catholicism:

-They observe formal days of fasting
-Church membership is based upon geography
-They, although rarely, excommunicate church members for egregious behavior
-They are forbidden from formally studying "non-Amish" theology
-They always dress modestly
-The ladies invariably wear head coverings
-During weddings, …More
There are many uncanny parallels between Amish practices and traditional Catholicism:

-They observe formal days of fasting
-Church membership is based upon geography
-They, although rarely, excommunicate church members for egregious behavior
-They are forbidden from formally studying "non-Amish" theology
-They always dress modestly
-The ladies invariably wear head coverings
-During weddings, they read from the Book of Tobias
-They usually marry around age 21
-They very, very rarely divorce
-Couples welcome children, and have big families
-They are very often misunderstood outside of their own community
-They believe in and readily accept sex-specific roles in family life
-They have very great respect for, and live by, the church rules they are taught

Just as God promises in Deuteronomy 28, by-and-large, they strive diligently to obey God and follow His commands as well as they know how, and, by-and-large, they receive the commensurate promised blessings. Looking at it economically, each of the families I know of is, monetarily, worth well into the seven figures. Even though they're fully aware of that, they count it as nothing, because their primary purpose is to live a life in conformity with God's commands.

Only our Lord, in His infinite love, wisdom, mercy, and justice, can sit upon the Judgment Seat.

Watch First Video for the Series Catechism for Catholic Fathers and Husbands

Claiming that one's teaching is catechesis is not claiming an authoritative position?

You are confusing catechesis with evangelism.

Claiming that one's teaching is catechesis is not claiming an authoritative position?

You are confusing catechesis with evangelism.

"Catechism for Catholic Fathers and Husbands", as a title, makes it pretty clear that this gentleman's intention is catechesis, and not evangelism.

Concerning all Catholics, we are expected to evangelize (including announcing Christ, per paragraphs 904 & 905), but the mantle of teacher (in matters of faith) belongs to the ordained, with participation by laity as specified in paragraph 906:

"Lay people who are capable and trained may also collaborate in catechetical formation, in teaching the sacred sciences, and in use of the communications media."

This video does not in any way appear to be collaboration (with the ordained). Perhaps I am wrong, and could be corrected on this point.

I don't mean anyone any harm, and it is not my intention to be a "Debbie Downer", but having any baptized, confirmed, married parent begin teaching (in matters of faith) is the kind of thinking that has led to there being some 44,000 or so Protestant denominations.

Concerning my being polite, I'd rather do my best to try and stick with the truth, than just jump on the "Nice Train", and smile & wave. Absent training and collaboration, lay people are not qualified (nor rightfully permitted) to be catechists.

Army Doctor Reveals More Soldiers have died from the Vaccine than died from COVID

She is revealing that it is probable that within 5 years, 66% of 80 servicemembers will have died as a result of myocarditis, which most likely is due to the vaccine.

That is very different from "have died", a claim easily disproven by a "fact-checker".
