Quick thoughts about Archbp. Viganò’s Letter to Pres. Trump

I’ve had a lot of people asking me via email to comment – or rather why I haven’t commented – on Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò’s Letter to Pres. Trump (V2POTUS).

I’ve been busy!

However, a little gap of time before rushing into the click scramble does everyone some good. We can think a little.

First, I’ve enjoy immensely the reactions from the radically papalotrous New catholic Red Guard after Pres. Trump tweeted about The Letter.  Some examples from Twitter:

And these only scratch the surface.

BTW… Austen is rejoicing at the civil violence of the mob these days.  HERE

And at the Fishwrap (which favors defunding law enforcement) the official tricoteuse Madame Defarge put his knitting needles down and wrote:

President Donald Trump watches Fox News, so I hope he caught this story that calls disgraced Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò a “Rome archbishop” as if he had some influence. In the event, he is not even in Rome and his influence is zilch. But, as I mentioned the other day, if Viganò and Trump become pen pals, look for the president to start telling his next rally about the third secret of Fatima. Buckle up!

GREAT!   I love the irony.  Madame D thinks Viganò has no influence… but here he is writing about him.  And he mocks someone at Fox for calling Viganò a “Rome archbishop”.  Yeah, that’s almost like calling the Fishwrap a “Catholic publication”.

QUAERITUR: Would the President be interested in the Third Secret of Fatima?  Interesting.  After all, the Second Secret was about the outbreak of wars and the possibility of the annihilation of nations.

About the V2POTUS Letter.

I must limit myself to only a few brief points.

First, I am as happy with The Letter as the Left is unhappy.  There is a touch of admitted epicaricacy in there.  So, my first point is The Letter is now living inside the skulls of those to about whom Viganò was warning.  With each passing day, more and more masks are being – irony of ironies – pulled off.

Compound Trump Derangement Syndrome with the additional Viganò Trigger Disorder and you’ve got a seriously unhappy bunch of libs.  Trump and Viganò own the turf between their ears now.   And their overlords don’t like it one little bit.

TDS + VTD = SPN  (Spittle-Flecked Nutty)

Next from The Letter:

[J]ust 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.

Deep state and deep church.   This is absolutely true.  There are truly evil people seeded like weeds through the church all the way to the highest levels.  There always have been and there always will be.  The deep church was perfectly manifested first by Judas, into whom Satan entered during the Last Supper (John 13:27).  The deep church is always a threat, because we are just human.  Even the Apostles had to be dressed down by the Lord for wondering who was going to have what place of honor.

The Enemy is really good at being an enemy.  The demonic Enemy is without physical limitations.  Hence, they never relent or rest or sleep.  They don’t miss anything.  They don’t forget.  They can oppress and possess.  OF COURSE there are evil agents of Satan in the Church!   The Enemy isn’t that stupid.

Today, we know that there has been corruption at the very top in the Vatican.  Just as an example, look at the goat rodeo that is the investigation and reform of Vatican finances.  Mammon.

Also, certain kinds of sins attract demons and permit them, legalistically, to attach to persons, things and places where the sins were committed.  There have been horrible perversions perpetrated in and around the Vatican City State, and in very important places.    I wrote about some of that HERE.  In a sort of fictional account: HERE.

There is a connection between the physical virus and the spiritual, demonic, virus that plagues us.  When the Lord heals in the Gospels, the physical healings are often simultaneous with exorcisms.  The forces that are operating for chaos in society today are also demonically fueled.

Of course certain forces are going to freak out over The Letter.

From The Letter:

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.

I saw various reactions to The Letter with spittle-flecked nutty rants about the imagery of “the children of light” and “children of darkness”.   This is proof of the propriety of Viganò’s warn.

Remember that modernists reduce the supernatural to the natural.  When they encounter people who really do believe in the transcendent, they are “triggered”.

No wonder the lefties went bonkers at The Letter. Viganò cleverly unmasked their deeper connections with the Latin medieval, and certainly demonic, solve et coagula.  I can see it in the White House.


“Mr. President, the former Apostolic Nuncio to these United States wrote an open letter to you.  You should see this.  I’ve highlighted some points and added notes.”

The President reads and occasionally checks the notes.   He frowns.

“What’s this ‘solve and coagulate’ thing again?”

“Well, sir, it’s like this.  Imagine that the forces of Hell have teamed up with the deep state and the DNC.”

The President nods.

“Picture the reaction of the forces of darkness  – big-business abortion, various leftist community organizers, the Democrat Party and other agents of social upheaval – to your election, your work against the deep state, your going to the March For Life, and your probable reelection.”

The President nods.

“Like Lenin suggested, to make an omelette you have to break eggs.  They want to dissolve the bonds of society, everything we are as a nation, and then recreate the nation, or what’s left, in their image.”

“That’s how they roll”, the President offers.

“That’s exactly how they roll, sir.  Archbishop Viganò is giving you a glimpse under the rock from his point of view, as a Catholic priest and bishop.  He fights this war on a spiritual plane while you fight this war on a temporal plane.  He is saying that he has your six but that you have to pray too, sir, because you are really going to need spiritual help in this fight.  Finally, this is a call to spiritual arms and to social action for all the Catholics who read his letter to you, sir.  And the left is not at all happy.  The last thing they want is for a strong alliance of faithful Catholics, who have the sacramental life of the Church for their support, with a president who actually believes that babies should not be aborted.  After all, that’s how demons attach to people and places.  Think about how big-business abortion targeted certain communities for extermination and how they are now rising in chaos and rage today.”

The President nods.

“There have been some pretty strong attacks on you and Archbishop Viganò on social media.  Would you care to see some of their reactions, Mr. President?  I have a roundup ready.”

The President takes the file and begins to read.  A smile slowly emerges.

“This is huge.  Where’s that guy with my phone?  I need to send this Viganò a thank you now.  Is that phone charged?”

“Of course, sir.  Here he is now.  The phone is fully charged, sir.”


On these notes, Viganò pointed to an important threat to the nation from within the Church.

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 who want to dominate the world by driving God out of the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches.

Freemasonry.  Communism.  Homosexuality.  All gateways for demonic influence.

Freemasons, communists and homosexuals have systematically infiltrated the Church.    Over time many have attained to high positions.  These can overlap.

This is real.  This is war.

War is not pretty.

If I were Pope, I would weekly send exorcists around the curial offices to clean house.

If I were a bishop, I would weekly send priests around blessing the work spaces of the chancery and sprinkling holy water and even blessed salt.    Use Title XI. ch. 3.

Pastors of souls should do that for their rectories, churches, all buildings and grounds. Use Title XI. ch. 3.   Yes, use LATIN.  I have recordings of exorcism prayers.

Fathers of families should ask the priest to bless their homes.

If I were President of the United States, I would get one of my trusted Catholic aides to find a bishop who could quietly visit the White House and pronounce the Chapter 3 exorcism over the place, especially the resident and the Oval.

So, Viganò’s Letter was terrific.


At Amerika – run by Jesuits we find an article claiming to explain who Archbp. Viganò is.   Get this.  Just when you thought they couldn’t be slimier.

Archbishop Viganò also accuses unnamed bishops of being “subservient” to the deep state and advocating “globalism,” a term that some say carries anti-Semitic history. He praises Mr. Trump by writing that the president “courageously defends the right to life.” The archbishop writes that he and the president “are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons.”

Note well: See that grouping?  Something ANTI-SEMITIC, right to life, spiritual warfare.

The writer, Michael J. O’Loughlin, used to write for the Fishwrap and the pro-homosexualist The Advocate, goes on to smear a little more.

The archbishop’s tenure in the United States was largely uncontroversial, but a new book by the Vatican reporter Christopher Lamb about Pope Francis, The Outsider, claims that during his time in Washington, Archbishop Viganò “aligned himself with culture warriors and anti-Francis supporters.” Later, Archbishop Viganò was accused of trying to quash a sex-abuse investigation into a prominent U.S. archbishop who shared a goal of fighting same-sex marriage.

Then, like a good little comrade aspiring to full membership in the New catholic Red Guard, he targets a US Bishop for a “struggle session”:

Over the past few years, at least a couple of dozen U.S. bishops have expressed support for Archbishop Viganò, including retired Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput and Bishop Joseph Strickland, who heads the Diocese of Tyler, Tex., and who signed Archbishop Viganò’s “world government” manifesto. Bishop Strickland called Archbishop Viganò’s original claims against Pope Francis “credible,” and he instructed priests in his diocese to circulate news of the letter.

    Fr. Z – I think this may be your best post ever. You are certainly in fine form today. Thanks for your ministry, it is clearly making an impact.

  2. The Cobbler says:

    All that drama, and the good Archbishop’s only recommendation is prayer! How better to prove his point than to get one’s panties in a bunch, not even because of any political call to action (there was none that I noticed; and drawing a parallel between politics and religion is just basic rhetoric when addressing someone with more experience in one than the other), but over a call to prayer?

  3. Not just “huge.” YUUUUUGE.

    “But, as I mentioned the other day, if Viganò and Trump become pen pals, look for the president to start telling his next rally about the third secret of Fatima. Buckle up!”

    Doggone right “buckle up” Madame Defarge. Here’s an advance copy of Pres. Trump’s speech for his next rally:

    “The Catholic Church doesn’t win anymore. We just don’t. When is the last time Catholics won anything? Lepanto? When was that, the 1500’s? We don’t win anymore. But, let me just say, under a Trump papacy, we are going to win again. We are going to win so much. We are going to win so much you are all going to be sick of winning, ok? But right now, it’s terrible. Just the other day, I see the Pope is praising Martin Luther. Martin Luther! Can you believe it?

    All our leaders do is “dialogue.” We don’t convert anymore, we “dialogue.” What the hell is dialogue? Excuse me, but shouldn’t we be converting these people? If we have the Truth, why aren’t we converting them?

    We are going to have the best priests, the brightest priests. They will be lining up to enter the seminaries. And the seminaries will be the best seminaries, let me just tell you. No more dopey professors. The seminaries are a mess today, they’re a disgrace. You might as well have Bernie Sanders running our seminaries that’s how bad they are. They’re filled with dopey professors from the 60’s. Their brains are burnt from whatever they smoked. Who knows what they smoked back then, God only knows what they smoked. But they’ll be gone, I promise you, they’ll be gone.

    They will be gone and the priesthood will be great once again. I will make the priesthood so exclusive. And you know how I’m going to do this? By building a rail. By building a great big beautiful altar rail in every single Catholic Church, that’s how.

    And, I must tell you, that under a Trump papacy we will have so much reverence in the Mass again, you will not believe it. You simply will not believe the reverence.

    My first thought of the letter was to hope that Archbishop Viganò would secretly become the presidents spiritual advisor. Not publicly but privately, just the two of them. Maybe Melania could join in too so they could travel the journey together. I have always thought the key to Trump was his baptized Catholic wife (even if she is not a perfect Catholic at least she has had the Sacraments) Can you imagine if President Trump converted to Catholicism and came out as a new and humble man but still with all of his fire for truth and justice. And now being a prayerful and humble man (and having the Holy Sacraments) his words and his tweets would be more civil and hence more powerful. We would then have our first Catholic President.

    My only fear in all of that is that he would lose the election because of our Protestant brothers and sisters could handle it.

  6. Mike says:

    My guess is that trying to defend globalism on the grounds that its opponents are “anti-Semites” (a Marxist term of art) is not going to work out the way the globalists would like it to.

  7. Kathleen10 says:

    I’m so appreciative to Abp. Vigano. So very appreciative. When I hear the pope of the Catholic Church criticize the man who has done more to defend life in America and around the world, and the obvious contempt he holds for America and our president, as do most Bishops, it is frustrating, to say the least. These men do not speak for me, not at all. I know there is a Catholic Church that does support this president, that does realize he is under attack by the demonic Left, but there is precious little verbal support expressed to him, and he deserves that support. I’m grateful it has now been spelled out, and made clear to this president that he should not be disheartened by this pope, those men, or Catholics who are lost. We have two churches, one True, one False. Don’t listen to the False one.
    I was disappointed but not surprised anymore, by the comment of Rhode Island “conservative” bishop, Bishop Tobin, on Abp. Vigano’s letter. A snarky comment, uncharitable. But these men know where there bread is buttered. Such moral cowardice in every direction, now exponentially worse since the race riots.
    Abp. Vigano. I’m grateful we have a few faithful shepherds. His words sustain, they are that powerful. He is articulating Truth, and it seems God is encouraging us by his words. His communique to the president could not have been better. But it seems also for us.

    The US is divided enough without turning the election into an apocalyptic event. The problem with this kind of support, written as it was, is that if Biden wins, does that mean the forces of darkness have descended in the US?

    The letter of support from Viganò gives the appearance of official Vatican endorsement. Most people are not going to be clued into the internecine Vatican conflicts or even care. They are just going to see former papal nuncio gives support.

    Probably wiser for Francis to just stay out of the whole thing and let events unfold as they are going to unfold. He is going to have to do some serious discernment around how to unify the Church which is in danger of becoming as divided as the USA along political lines.

    Viganò writes “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“

    I am glad to see the nod to labour and workers (very Catholic) as well as castigating greed and excessive wealth, and also wars. But are the Republicans and Trump really the party that is going to support workers ? I am no fan of the Dems either but I would like to see policy details and I don’t give a rats behind if those policies have a D or R behind them
