Pope Francis joined six other prelates — including Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles and cardinals from Mexico, Brazil and El Salvador — in a public service ad in which he called vaccination against COVID-19 “an act of love.”
Pope Francis is now appearing in a new commercial aimed at Spanish-speaking countries, urging Roman Catholics everywhere to submit to the ‘respective authorities’ in an act of ‘universal love’ and agree to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. For you students of Bible prophecy, does this tantalizing little prophetic appetizer remind you of anything? You get 3 guesses, and the first two don’t count. 3 guesses, 3 sixes, take your pick you’ll wind up at the same place.
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:16-18 (KJB)
Do you know what World War I was? It was a warm-up for World War II which featured a man who in 7 ways was a perfect type of Antichrist. A man who terrorized the whole world, and launched a campaign to slaughter 50% of the world’s Jews in a stunning foreshadowing of the coming time of the Great Tribulation. Do you know what the COVID vaccine is? No, it’s not the Mark of the Beast, it’s the WWI warmup that leads you to the Mark of the Beast. If you read and believe your King James Bible, then you know exactly what’s going on. If you don’t then you’ll be taken by surprise. 3 guesses, 3 sixes, take your pick you’ll wind up at the same place. Tick, tock…
“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9 (KJB)
Pope Francis appears in advertisement promoting COVID vaccinations
FROM CRUX NOW: “Thanks to God’s grace and to the work of many, we now have vaccines to protect us from COVID-19,” the pope says in the ad. “They bring hope to end the pandemic, but only if they are available to all and if we collaborate with one another.”
The ad from the nonprofit group Ad Council began circulating online and on TV on Wednesday. It’s the group’s first campaign to extend beyond the United States. The ad includes Pope Francis, Gomez, Mexican Cardinal Carlos Aguiar Retes, Honduran Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, Brazilian Cardinal Claudio Hummes, Salvadorian Cardinal Gregorio Rosa Chavez, and Peruvian Archbishop Miguel Cabrejos, describing vaccination against COVID as a moral responsibility.
“Getting the vaccines that are authorized by the respective authorities is an act of love. And helping the majority of people to do so is an act of love,” Francis continues. “Getting vaccinated is a simple yet profound way to care for one another, especially the most vulnerable.”
By taking part in the vaccination campaign, the pope has joined a group of influencers that includes former presidents, first ladies, athletes, musicians, actors and even Elmo from “Sesame Street.”
Pope Francis, who’s come under fire for not always wearing a mask when greeting people in public, received the Pfitzer vaccine earlier this year, with the Vatican being one of the first states to offer free vaccines to all of its citizens and employees. Thousands of homeless people from Rome also received the vaccine courtesy of the Vatican. The Ad Council said it would run the ad on Telemundo, Universo and WarnerMedia platforms, as well as on media in Spanish-speaking countries. Gomez, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Archbishop of Los Angeles, lamented the damage the pandemic has caused across the globe.
“The terrible coronavirus pandemic has caused disease, death and suffering throughout the world,” the archbishop said. “May God grant us the grace to face it with the strength of faith, ensuring that vaccines are available to all.”
Speaking from the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mexico’s Aguiar Retes said that “as we prepare for a better future as an interconnected global community, we want to bring hope to all, without exclusion.”
“From North to South America, we support vaccination for all,” he said.
Maradiaga, a member of the council of cardinals who advise the pope in the reform of the Roman Curia, said that the world has much to learn from the virus but “one thing is certain: The authorized vaccines are effective, and are here to save lives. They are the key to a path of personal and universal healing.”
Speaking in Portuguese, Hummes praised the “heroic efforts” of health professionals in developing “safe and effective” jabs.
Lisa Sherman, the chief executive of the Ad Council, a group that led a similar crusade in the 1950s when it urged Americans to get vaccinated against polio, said in a statement, “We’ve said all along that the messenger can be as or more important than the actual message itself.”
“To the world’s billion-plus Catholics, the Pope is one of the most trusted messengers and holds unparalleled influence,” Sherman said. “We are extremely grateful to him and the Cardinals and Archbishops for lending their voices and platforms to help people across the globe feel more confident in the vaccines.” READ MORE

When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 15,860+ people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 150,000+ followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 15,900 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
