In a recent email sent to friends and supporters, Father Charlie Becker, a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago, wrote (slightly edited and published with his permission):
As a Catholic priest, I want you to know that I’m voting for President Trump. I’m doing this most importantly for the continuation of the protection of life for the unborn; for law and order, as recent protests have had a mixed agenda (some good and some not good); for protection of our sovereignty (which is a defined right by the Church) versus globalism; for protection of what is good about our capitalistic economy; and for protection of our Constitution versus a socialist ideology. Just thought I needed to share this with you and that, above all, we should pray for our country and the whole world. Let’s hope for what’s best in the end.
God bless you, Father. I voted for President Trump for those same reasons. Am I optimistic he’ll win? To be honest, no – but I hope and pray that God will spare us the worst of what could come in the next several years.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.© Matt C. Abbott
