Archbishop Viganò Was Right About Donald Trump, by Kennedy Hall

By Kennedy Hall, Crisis Magazine – Vigano wrote: “It is you, dear President, who are ‘the one who opposes’ the deep state, the final assault of the children of darkness.”… Again, whatever you think about Trump, it is clear that the deep state views him as almost an existential threat, and they will stop at nothing to take him down. This must give us pause… Much like in Scripture when it is the demons who attest to the divinity of Christ, it is almost like the demonic globalists can’t help but attest by their hatred for Trump that he is the leading figure of an America that Viganò labeled: “The defending wall against which the war declared by the advocates of globalism has been unleashed.”

Without the priest, there is no Eucharist, and without the Eucharist, there is no Church.
