Laudetur Iesus Christus! We wanted to share with you Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò’s urgent and hopeful letter to American Catholics and all Americans of Good Will. In short, he encourages all Americans to continue praying and to pray the Rosary! His Excellency says:
In these hours, while the gates of Hell seem to prevail, allow me to address myself to you with an appeal, which I trust that you will respond to promptly and with generosity. I ask you to make an act of trust in God, an act of humility and filial devotion to The Lord of Armies. I ask that all of you pray the Holy Rosary, if possible in your families or with your dear ones, your friends, your brothers and sisters, your colleagues, your fellow soldiers.
Do not allow yourselves to be discouraged by the deceptions of the Enemy, even more so in this terrible hour in which the impudence of lying and fraud dares to challenge Heaven. Our adversaries’ hours are numbered if you will pray, if we will all pray with Faith and with the true ardor of Charity. May the Lord grant that one single devout and faithful voice rise from your homes, your churches, and your streets! This voice will not remain unheard, because it will be the voice of a people that cries out, in the moment when the storm rages most fiercely, “Save us, Lord, we are perishing!” (Mt 8:25).
The days that await us are a precious occasion for all of you, and for those who unite themselves spiritually to you from every part of the world. You have the honor and privilege of being able to participate in the victory of this spiritual battle, to wield the powerful weapon of the Holy Rosary as our fathers did at Lepanto to repel the enemy armies.

Binding Prayer of Command: There is a binding prayer of command, attributed to Exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger to be prayed daily until the election is resolved. It’s on Page 13 of his book Deliverance Prayers – For use By the Laity. We attach a copy and encourage everyone to pray to ask Our Blessed Lord to bind any demons or diabolical influences on our country during this time.
