Vatican Archbishop Witnesses America’s Current Biblical Struggle and Urges President Trump and all Americans to Pray

biblicalJune 7, 2020
Holy Trinity Sunday 

Mr. President,

In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority. And yet the former are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media. In an apparently inexplicable way, the good are held hostage by the wicked and by those who help them either out of self-interest or fearfulness.

These two sides, which have a Biblical nature, follow the clear separation between the offspring of the Woman and the offspring of the Serpent. On the one hand there are those who, although they have a thousand defects and weaknesses, are motivated by the desire to do good, to be honest, to raise a family, to engage in work, to give prosperity to their homeland, to help the needy, and, in obedience to the Law of God, to merit the Kingdom of Heaven. On the other hand, there are those who serve themselves, who do not hold any moral principles, who want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and wars, and accumulate power and money: for them the fallacious illusion of temporal well-being will one day – if they do not repent – yield to the terrible fate that awaits them, far from God, in eternal damnation.

In society, Mr. President, these two opposing realities co-exist as eternal enemies, just as God and Satan are eternal enemies. And it appears that the children of darkness – whom we may easily identify with the deep state which you wisely oppose and which is fiercely waging war against you in these days – have decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans. They seem to be so certain of already having everything under control that they have laid aside that circumspection that until now had at least partially concealed their true intentions. The investigations already under way will reveal the true responsibility of those who managed the Covid emergency not only in the area of health care but also in politics, the economy, and the media. We will probably find that in this colossal operation of social engineering there are people who have decided the fate of humanity, arrogating to themselves the right to act against the will of citizens and their representatives in the governments of nations.

We will also discover that the riots in these days were provoked by those who, seeing that the virus is inevitably fading and that the social alarm of the pandemic is waning, necessarily have had to provoke civil disturbances, because they would be followed by repression which, although legitimate, could be condemned as an unjustified aggression against the population. The same thing is also happening in Europe, in perfect synchrony. It is quite clear that the use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with conviction. It will not be surprising if, in a few months, we learn once again that hidden behind these acts of vandalism and violence there are those who hope to profit from the dissolution of the social order so as to build a world without freedom: Solve et Coagula, as the Masonic adage teaches.

Although it may seem disconcerting, the opposing alignments I have described are also found in religious circles. There are faithful Shepherds who care for the flock of Christ, but there are also mercenary infidels who seek to scatter the flock and hand the sheep over to be devoured by ravenous wolves. It is not surprising that these mercenaries are allies of the children of darkness and hate the children of light: just as there is a deep state, there is also a deep church that betrays its duties and forswears its proper commitments before God. Thus the Invisible Enemy, whom good rulers fight against in public affairs, is also fought against by good shepherds in the ecclesiastical sphere. It is a spiritual battle, which I spoke about in my recent Appeal which was published on May 8.

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. And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons.

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. And it is disconcerting that there are Bishops – such as those whom I recently denounced – who, by their words, prove that they are aligned on the opposing side. They are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a universal brotherhood which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes the Masonic ideals of those want to dominate the world by driving God out of the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches.

The American people are mature and have now understood how much the mainstream media does not want to spread the truth but seeks to silence and distort it, spreading the lie that is useful for the purposes of their masters. However, it is important that the good – who are the majority – wake up from their sluggishness and do not accept being deceived by a minority of dishonest people with unavowable purposes. It is necessary that the good, the children of light, come together and make their voices heard. What more effective way is there to do this, Mr. President, than by prayer, asking the Lord to protect you, the United States, and all of humanity from this enormous attack of the Enemy? Before the power of prayer, the deceptions of the children of darkness will collapse, their plots will be revealed, their betrayal will be shown, their frightening power will end in nothing, brought to light and exposed for what it is: an infernal deception.

Mr. President, my prayer is constantly turned to the beloved American nation, where I had the privilege and honor of being sent by Pope Benedict XVI as Apostolic Nuncio. In this dramatic and decisive hour for all of humanity, I am praying for you and also for all those who are at your side in the government of the United States. I trust that the American people are united with me and you in prayer to Almighty God.

United against the Invisible Enemy of all humanity, I bless you and the First Lady, the beloved American nation, and all men and women of good will.

Carlo Maria Viganò
Titular Archbishop of Ulpiana Former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States of America

I suspect this author has the best of intentions but his article has one major flaw that makes it very deceptive and this point is important because Satan can use religion and even well-meaning individuals to spread false doctrine. Here’s what I mean:
The author said the following:
“These two sides, which have a Biblical nature, follow the clear separation between the offspring of the Woman and the offspring of the Serpent. On the one hand there are those who, although they have a thousand defects and weaknesses, are motivated by the desire to do good, to be honest, to raise a family, to engage in work, to give prosperity to their homeland, to help the needy, and, in obedience to the Law of God, to merit the Kingdom of Heaven.”
True biblical Christianity alone has a final sacrifice for sin. Far too many individuals (this includes Catholics and even some Protestants and Evangelicals) place an inordinate emphasis on laws, rules, rituals, pilgrimages and other things that enslave people with the hope that if repeated, will add something more to their acceptance by God. On the other hand, in true biblical Christianity, Christ offered himself once. We add nothing to that sacrifice that somehow allows us, “…to merit the Kingdom of Heaven.” Jesus alone did everything necessary to reconcile us to God the Father and any obedience that follows is done not to gain eternal life in any way, but to show our gratitude for what Christ has already accomplished for us. Those who are truly born-again are freed from slavery to the law and the flesh. This doesn’t mean Christians are lawless. Instead, via the guiding presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit, they live by the law of Christ and are being sanctified and transformed to live like Him.
Never place religious tradition above truth. Jesus is the way, the truth, the life, the only way to the Father (John 14:6) and the only mediator between God and men (1 Timothy 2:5).

The pope says Trump is not a Christian. Has he elevated himself to replace God? God knows who has accepted His Son as their personal Savior, not the pope.

This Anit-God movement started with the last Administration, they try to take God out of our lives out of a school
And with this epidemic they are trying to keep our churches close but God is Almighty and God will not let this happen,
Seens God put Trump as president because God is using Trump to bring his people back to him
And all these senators and congressmen and governors that hate God must be replaced by fearing God ‘s people.
They want to keep murdering un-born childern, and want to bring destruction to our country and Create more Hate, this people are trying to turn our country into a communist state and take our Freedom away like the George Soros of the world and the Bill Gates of this world the covid-19epidemic has been a test to see how they can control Us by keeping everybody at home trying to make the whole nation into a welfare Nation, to depend on the government so we become like puppets. But thank God we that believe , God will freed us from this evilness,
So stay in prayer and faith support your church pray in the morning and pray at night and through the whole day keep God in your heart and pray for our nation to Free us from the evilness to send us a spirit of love a spirit that will take away all this hate that these devil worshippers are bringing to our Nation. Don’t let these devil worshippers keep us from loving God and believing in God and keeping our faith .
IN GOD WE TRUST. ??????????? Manny.

Your second sentence made me chuckle. There is quite a difference between the two, for sure. (I’m Baptist, BTW, but truly appreciate the Archbishop’s letter, every word.)

I must admit that I was tempted to point out that Catholics are not true Christians and nobody who is a “bishop” or even an “arch-bishop” can ever speak for Christ. But this man’s words are beautiful. It is sad that he will spend etertnity in H*ll, but that is his choice!

A true Christian would not demean anyone else’s religious beliefs.

Thanks, Dan. As a pro-choice atheist who strongly supports LGBTQ rights, it can be hard to find Christians who seem to be on my side, but I’ve always believed you’re out there. I don’t expect you to apologize for other Christians; I just appreciate your stance.

Well, Abigail, aren’t you a breath of fresh air! Condescendingly acknowledging ArchBishop Vigano makes a good point about the war between the Children of Light and the Children of Darkness, but he’s going to H*ll because he doesn’t think like you. Not very tolerant and open-minded of you, but not surprising when you understand that there are an estimated 33,000 Christian denominations in the US and they all believe the others got things wrong.

Matthew 7, verses 1,& 2…….Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.

Hard to want to stay with AMAC when it has members like Abigail. Archbishop Vigano makes a strong point of how our President stands up for the Christian Children of Light. Don’t ever remember Obama or any Democrat walking in a Right to Life rally. Abigail, Catholics make up a large percentage of True Christians.

Abigail – I’m 78 and accepted Christ’s shed blood to cover my sin at the grand old age of nine years old. He is my Savior, even when I left the church for a number of years in late teens thru my 20s. He drew me back at 32, always having been with me. In later years He showed me He has children in all denominations. If you read the above letter, not knowing who wrote it, would you still say they were not Christian? Think about that and pray for God to show you the truth.

Your response is what is known as “judge not, lest ye be judged.” Only God knows a person’s heart and that is for Him to judge. I am dismayed at your response.

The love of Christ abides in each heart and has nothing to do with your denomination. To say that Catholics are not Christian reveals what is in your heart. I hope that you can change your judgement and be enlightened to the truth of what it means be be a Christian and live life according to Jesus who loves us all.
