Is Challenging Covid Propaganda Too “Political”? More Christian To Just Pray? Just Lean On Shovel?

Is Challenging Covid Propaganda Too “Political”? More Christian To Just Pray? Just Lean On Shovel?


There is a school of thought among Catholics which argues that we should “give unto Caesar” in the matter of Covid restrictions,  do what we are told (in order to “stay safe” – Gimme strength) because otherwise, we are into the area of “political activism” and that is “not Catholic”.  This was particularly curious during the closure of churches – as if any Government has spiritual authority over the Church. 

I think one of the commentators over on The Remnant YouTube platform sums up the issue, perfectly:  “God is in control, but He doesn’t expect you to lean on a shovel and pray for a hole.”   

Well… do you agree?

    Yes, what’s that quote – something like ‘work as if everything depended on you, and pray as if everything depended on God’. I think that’s how it goes, although I’m not 100% sure it’s verbatim – and I can’t remember who made the quote either. I think sometimes there can be situations where just praying is the only option available, but otherwise it’s incumbent on us to pray and act according to our abilities, in any situation. ‘Ora et Labora’
    P.S. Is anyone else here getting hounded by the NHS about covid jabs? I’ve had literally dozens of phone calls / texts / voicemails now. It’s harassment.

      Westminster Fly ,

      I would definitely warn them that I was going to lodge an official complaint of harassment if they don’t stop. It’s ludicrous. If the injection really made a difference, they wouldn’t have to convince us about it. The very fact that they have to harass people into taking it, is suspicious enough for me to stick to my decision not to take it.

    G K Chesterton’s quote sums it up really “only dead fish flow with the current”. That would include all those Catholics who speak constantly of prayer while failing in their like duty to publicly oppose manifest evil.

    I forgot to say that I have had two letters thus far from the NHS urging me to get vaccinated and I expect more in the near future. It is harassment and I foresee enforcement down the line. What they’re doing with this massive and dangerous experiment contravenes international law and the Nuremburg protocols, completely unethical and immoral – a crime against humanity much greater in scale than even the crimes of Dr. Mengele.

    Yes, I have had a couple of letters too from the NHS also urging me to get vaccinated.

    Ed the Vaccine as far as am concerned is for The Peasants only. If they think ,that we who do think ,Believe otherwise then their stupid. But as M . M says the cracks are beginning to show and show plenty in the U.S.A at least . Isn’t it amazing that in the Senate, no Masks required but in Pelosis House of Representatives Masks are required. We now know beyond any Reasonable doubt that this is Political. We also know though that it is a Political Warfare Disease certainly Fabricated in China, made in China as most things are now made in China. Athanasius I also have had 2 Letters from the N.H.S. and like most on here phoned them up saying I wasn’t taking the Injection.
    As you also say Gates and Co!s Poison breaks all 10 of the Nuremberg Code Laws but what do we The Peasants do. Us who do not take it know we are in for a rough time. I personally had to go and get Blood Tests on Friday and Expected them to ask if I had been Injected before I went in. I and probably most on here know that Getting an Appointment is Hard enough will they be the first to ask for Vaccine Certificates. Am supposed to have an Appointment with a Dentist on the 3rd of Next Month considering av waited nearly a year will they also demand we be Vaccinated or Sterilised before they work on our Teeth. I like Michael Matt believe that yes we have to unite the Clans, it pains me to say it but the Eds already highlighted it. Would Our Catholic Churches still be closed if It weren’t for The Protestants. As for this Blog it most certainly seems to be the only Site in Scotland that Dares criticise our Priests. Bishops and acting Pope. I said before about a Priest of whom I asked about the Latin Mass and this Site who said ” Their all Religious Nutcases ” BTW that was the same Priest who gave a Homily comparing Pope Francis with John the Baptist. More like comparing an 13 Amp Electrical Socket to a Power Station. As a P.S wasn’t it great in Fr Altmans last Sermon when he said ” Over the last year i have given the Eucharist on the Tongue to 60,000 ” he has fed his Children but he has to go ,we know why . It’s because he’s a Catholic.

    The challenge to the COVID agitprop has taken a curious turn over here. More and more voices are being raised from the Republican side of the aisle that the virus (you know, the virus which has never been properly identified) was a Wuhan creation, not from bats – or, as FOOF might say, it came from humans that were bats, not actual bats. And it was funded by a human bat who also happens to be a weasel…

    However, the curious part of this is that I keep hearing “accidental release” from the Wuhan lab. Someone please tell me, if the scam-demic was war-gamed in October 2019, at Event 201 at Johns Hopkins University, then how was the release of the “virus” accidental, 6 weeks later? Are we to conclude that it escaped from the lab before it had been made deadly enough?

    (Don’t worry Ed., I’m still ruminating on your topic question…)

      Victor isint it strange how the sheep keep going into the sheep dip without shepherds. Actually as you say and its noted here at least. The American people are now looking at Texas and Florida Etc and are calling B.S. to 2 Masks Fauci who is a Liar like his Master is from the very beginning. Their is at least ONE very good thing that has come out of all of this Plan Demic its the Chaff have now nowhere to hide. But we know that Satan never sleeps and the Bstards are coming after our Children. I believe and i of course know am not alone .That this Injection is to sterilize the Peasants and their lining up like Lemmings to be injected. I also believe that Billy Goat Gates helped the Chinese all the way with this Sterilization Program. As its been said at least by us . Why in the Hell would Eugenic Evil Men like Gates and Fauci to name but 2 . Want to produce Vaccines to help the Peasants .

        They’re not only going into the sheep dip, they’re having it pumped into their arms in the form of a vaccine!

        I’m afraid sterilization is only the half of it: think “Georgia Guidestones.”

        However, about 6 years ago, no one ever heard of the “Deep State,” so maybe the sheep are slowly becoming un-dipped…

        I’ve also been wondering about Our Lady’s warning about the “annihilation of nations.” Could this have been a reference to what’s going to happen to the vaccinated millions within the next 2 years?

    I’ve just read about a British model who died after receiving the vaccine

    I’m just taken aback that they are still badgering people to get jabbed when people are dying and having serious side effects. They must have absolutely no consciences.

      Lily that is tragic as is any death but for what, WHY are young ones even contemplating taking this Injection and we know the Answer. I have as you all know on here completely ditched the M.S.M and that Goggle Box in the corner. I have told my Daughter not to take this Poison but She never has a T V off so actually like probably 95% of the Peasants thinks this Injection is a good thing. Its practically 24 Hour Propaganda about Hospitals Full to the brim , and we know that that is untrue. Like the Woman who was refused Hospital treatment down in England ,who was told it was full .She went in and filmed empty ward after empty ward. Of course She was arrested and the video never got out but Her word did. I mean i even have Family Members who believe that Nippy speaks the Truth.

    “God is in control, but He doesn’t expect you to lean on a shovel and pray for a hole.”

    I agree we should not sit back and refuse to join in this fight against evil. Isn’t faith supposed to be fruitful in good works?

      Susan Gollop,

      That sounds like a great idea but I think it would have to be divided up, first part o n front and second part on the back, LOL!
