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
