Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano wrote a letter to President Donald Trump, warning him that the latest crises rocking the United States are part of an eternal spiritual struggle between the forces of good and evil. Citing President Trump’s strong pro-life stance as a sign of “good,” Archbishop Vigano wrote the prophetic and powerful letter to president, encouraging him to “keep the faith.”
Part of Archbishop Vigano’s letter reads: “For the first time, the United States has in you a President who courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and the right of citizens to freedom of worship. Your participation in the March for Life, and more recently your proclamation of the month of April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month, are actions that confirm which side you wish to fight on.”
Vigano explained within the letter that he believes “both of us are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons,” as he set his sites on the liberal media for disparaging the president’s visit last week to a D.C. shrine honoring Pope John Paul II. “For this reason, I believe that the attack to which you were subjected after your visit to the National Shrine of Saint John Paul II is part of the orchestrated media narrative which seeks not to fight racism and bring social order, but to aggravate dispositions; not to bring justice, but to legitimize violence and crime; not to serve the truth, but to favor one political faction,” the Archbishop declared.

Washington Archbishop Wilton Gregory, the nation’s highest-ranking African American Bishop, had condemned President Trump’s visit to the shrine last week. Gregory issued a statement the day after the visit, reading, “I find it baffling and reprehensible that any Catholic facility would allow itself to be so egregiously misused and manipulated in a fashion that violates our religious principles, which call us to defend the rights of all people, even those with whom we might disagree.”
The statement released by Archbishop Gregory was heralded by the media. Conspicuously, the mainstream media has barely covered the supportive letter written by Archbishop Vigano in support of our president. This is a great reminder of the real battle we face. It really is “good vs evil,” and we’re truly dealing with an epic spiritual battle in this country. We can’t give up and throw in the towel—there is far too much at stake.
