I have a theological question to ask you regarding the possibility that Catholic Bishops will force Catholics to show a

covid-19 "passport" in order to go to Church and Receive The Eucharist.

I am a Conscientious Objector to receiving the morally tainted present covid shot.

If I had to make a decision that would require me to forcibly take the covid-19 shot in order to Receive the Eucharist

or even go to Church and Confession would I as a Catholic be justified in doing that in order to Receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ?

I am worried about this happening.
Many months ago the clergy of the UK--pandenominational--condemned any proposal to require a "vaccine passport" to attend worship services and receive Sacraments.

Finally, as Christian leaders we wish to state that we envisage no circumstances in which we could close our doors to those who do not have a vaccine passport, negative test certificate, or any other “proof of health”. For the Church of Jesus Christ to shut out those deemed by the state to be social undesirables would be anathema to us and a denial of the truth of the Gospel. The message we preach is given by God for all people and consists in nothing other than the free gift of grace offered in Christ Jesus, with the universal call to repentance and faith in him. To deny people entry to hear this life-giving message and to receive this life-giving ministry would be a fundamental betrayal of Christ and the Gospel. Sincere Christian churches and organisations could not do this, and as Christian leaders we would be compelled to resist any such Act of Parliament vigorously.
