Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time

We do not know the time when earth and humanity will reach their completion, nor do we know the way in which the universe will be transformed.

From the Second Vatican Council’s pastoral constitution “Gaudium et spes” on the Church in the modern world

I trust that the American people are united with me and you in prayer to Almighty God.

Open letter to President Donald Trump | Carlo Maria Viganò

what are we asking of our country’s Maker? are we praying that Almighty God assist us in playing power politics?  are we of the belief that our side is inviolable?

Today’s Scriptures

“I will thrust you from your office

and pull you down from your station.”

Isaiah 22:19

United against the Invisible Enemy of all humanity, I bless you and the First Lady…

Open letter to President Donald Trump | Carlo Maria Viganò

is archbishop vigano claiming that Divine rescue is the result of president trump and our first lady’s virtues instead of God’s loving fidelity? does this public act of writing an open letter stir the surrounding nations to praise God’s greatness and care for the people? does archbishop vigano trust that God will always be there in moments of danger, no matter who is pope or president?

R. Lord, your love is eternal; do not forsake the work of your hands.

The LORD is exalted, yet the lowly he sees,

and the proud he knows from afar.

Psalm 138

…the beloved American nation, and all men and women of good will.

Open letter to President Donald Trump | Carlo Maria Viganò

is the american nation beloved because we are free of religious recalcitrance, and have earned the gift of faith? does archbishop vigano assume to understand the methods used by God in making His outreach to the world which staggers human comprehension but, at the same time is a dazzling invitation to abiding faith?

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! 

How inscrutable are his judgments and how unsearchable his ways!

Romans 11:33

Carlo Maria Viganò-Titular Archbishop of Ulpiana

Open letter to President Donald Trump | Carlo Maria Viganò

why is a titular archbishop of a little known archdiocese writing an open letter to the president of the united states commending him for being and remaining steadfast in overcoming the gates of the netherworld so that the “children of darkness “shall not prevail against us; when the person upon whom our Church is founded was promised by Jesus, that it will not be overcome by the power of death?

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

You are Peter and upon this rock I will build my Church

and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Matthew 16:18

Former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States of America

Open letter to President Donald Trump | Carlo Maria Viganò

given that archbishop vigano has already been dealt with by God as Shebna was and thrust from his office and pulled down from his station, on whose authority is he writing this open letter since he is no longer in possession of the keys?

“I will give you (Peter) the keys to the kingdom of heaven.

Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven;

and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

Matthew 16:19
