Pope Francis’ second-in-command, Cdl. Pietro Parolin, personally intervened to bar Cdl. Raymond Burke from entering Vatican offices over Burke’s conscientious objection to the abortion-tainted COVID-19 vaccine.
Sources at the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints told Church Militant that Burke, a member of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, was recently stopped at the entrance to the building because he did not possess a Green Pass.
The Green Pass, issued by Italy and the Vatican, shows that the holder has been vaccinated against the China virus or recovered from it in the last six months. Burke suffered from COVID-19 in September of 2021, so his pass expired in March 2022.
The Vatican Green Pass requirements exceed the demands of the Italian government. A decree, issued by Parolin, compels all personnel and visitors to get a booster as a condition of entry to Vatican offices from Jan. 31.
