Today Sister Judy was able to put into action “love of neighbor” by receiving the COVID-19 vaccination at her workplace, Forest Springs of Trilogy. Sister Judy says, “I feel I am helping defeat the coronavirus at work and home. I won’t be a carrier. I will help the world get back to normal. I also am ensuring I won’t catch COVID again.”

“Receiving one of the COVID-19 vaccines ought to be understood as an act of charity toward the other members of our community. In this way, being vaccinated safely against COVID-19 should be considered an act of love of our neighbor and part of our moral responsibility for the common good.” -U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops
