Pray the 3rd Sorrowful Mystery Every Day for the Trump Administration

There are many things that we can do in response to the Press/​Democrat/​Liberal Jihad on the Trump administration.

We can treat Democ­rats in the same way they do Trump and hold them to the same legal stan­dards (spe­cial pros­e­cu­tors at the drop of a hat , mas­sive protests when­ever they try to speak, law­suits when­ever pos­si­ble ) in the hopes that being on the receiv­ing end of Demo­c­rat treat­ment might cause them to tem­per their behav­ior in the same way that directly con­fronting Antifa in Berke­ley sud­denly caused the uni­ver­sity and the city to decide enforc­ing the law was a good idea.

But if you claim Chris­tian­ity in gen­eral and Catholi­cism in par­tic­u­lar there is one avenue that we need to be active on in terms of defend­ing this administration.

Prayer.

We need to be pray­ing for this pres­i­dent and his admin­is­tra­tion on a daily basis, ask­ing God to pro­tect and inspire it toward his will, because as St. Paul noted we are fight­ing against more than earthly pow­ers and if we are to pre­vail we need to make this fight on all fronts.

For myself as part of my daily 2 hour prayer rou­tine I offer the 3rd Sor­row­ful mys­tery the Crown­ing with Thorns for Pres­i­dent Trump and this admin­is­tra­tion. It is an appro­pri­ate choice not only because of the treat­ment of said admin­is­tra­tion by the press which takes joy in their attempts to inflict pain and humil­i­a­tion on it but because “con­tempt of the world” that is, con­tempt for what the desires and pres­sures of the world when serv­ing God is the tra­di­tional inten­tion in St. Louis De Mont­fort famous vol­ume on pray­ing the Rosary.

There are some who might dis­count such an action as many peo­ple think of their Chris­t­ian faith as a social club that meets on Sundays.

But if you actu­ally believe in the truth of Chris­tian­ity and in what Christ actu­ally said this is not only log­i­cal and ratio­nal but nec­es­sary if we want things to improve.

So if you are a Catholic (or even if you are not) I invite you to join me in this daily devo­tion for the sake of this admin­is­tra­tion and by exten­sion for our com­mon country.

May God bless our efforts

We can treat Democrats in the same way they do Trump and hold them to the same legal standards (special prosecutors at the drop of a hat , massive protests whenever they try to speak,  lawsuits whenever possible ) in the hopes that being on the receiving end of Democrat treatment might cause them to temper their behavior in the same way that directly confronting Antifa in Berkeley suddenly caused the university and the city to decide enforcing the law was a good idea.

But if you claim Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular there is one avenue that we need to be active on in terms of defending this administration.

We need to be praying for this president and his administration on a daily basis, asking God to protect and inspire it toward his will, because as St. Paul noted we are fighting against more than earthly powers and if we are to prevail we need to make this fight on all fronts.

For myself as part of my daily 2 hour prayer routine I offer the 3rd Sorrowful mystery the Crowning with Thorns for President Trump and this administration.  It is an appropriate choice not only because of the treatment of said administration by the press which takes joy in their attempts to inflict pain and humiliation on it but because “contempt of the world” that is, contempt for what the desires and pressures of the world when serving God is the traditional intention in St. Louis De Montfort famous volume on praying the Rosary.

There are some who might discount such an action as many people think of their Christian faith as a social club that meets on Sundays.

But if you actually believe in the truth of Christianity and in what Christ actually said this is not only logical and rational but necessary if we want things to improve.

So if you are a Catholic (or even if you are not) I invite you to join me in this daily devotion for the sake of this administration and by extension for our common country.
