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):

    Hi everyone,

    As a Catholic priest, I want you to know that I知 voting for President Trump. I知 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痴 hope for what痴 best in the end.

    ____________________

    God bless you, Father. I voted for President Trump for those same reasons. Am I optimistic he値l 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.
