    Priest invites President Trump to consecrate U.S. to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    The request to the President is for October 7th, the feast of Our Lady of Victory, to come the National Shrine of St. Alphonsus Liguori in Baltimore.

    September 23, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – A Catholic priest in Baltimore has invited President Donald Trump to consecrate the United States to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

    Father Ian Bozant, a Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) priest at the National Shrine of St. Alphonsus Liguori, said he was inspired to ask President Trump to consecrate the nation to Our Lady after witnessing Christopher Macchio sing “Ave Maria” at the Republican National Convention.

    On September 8th, the feast of the Nativity of Our Lady, Fr. Bozant sent a letter to President Trump asking him to consecrate the United States to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on October 7th, the feast of Our Lady of Victory.

    “Mr. President, you have been given the authority to govern this nation from Almighty God, for all authority comes from Him (cf. Romans 13:1),” Fr. Bozant wrote. “As a result, you and all leaders of this world are engaged in a battle between good and evil, light and darkness. This battle should not be fought alone. ... I ask you to consecrate this great nation to the Blessed Virgin Mary ... so that you may invoke the protection of the great Mother of God.”

    Because Fr. Bozant understands that authority comes from God and that humanity is engaged in a spiritual battle, he urged the President to consecrate the United States to Mary’s protection and aid.

    “In light of recent events in our nation, an act of consecration to the Blessed Mother seems more and more important, entrusting ourselves and our nation to Her powerful intercession,” Fr. Bozant told his parishioners in an email.  
    Historically, October 7th has great significance for Catholics. On that day, in 1571, the Catholic armies defeated the Ottoman empire in the Battle of Lepanto through Our Lady's intercession and the power of the Rosary.

    Additionally, the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s history makes it an ideal location for President Trump to consecrate the United States to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Archdiocese of Baltimore was the first Catholic diocese established in the country, with Bishop John Carroll as its first bishop in 1789. Just three years after Bishop Carroll was appointed bishop of the new diocese, he consecrated the young nation to Mary under her title of the Immaculate Conception.

    The Archdiocese of Baltimore has been at the forefront of the nation’s history, and that’s why Fr. Bozant is asking President Trump to consecrate the country to the Blessed Mother’s protection at the Shrine of St. Alphonsus Liguori. Should President Trump accept the invitation, he will have the opportunity to ask Our Lady of Victory to “bring the light of victory to the darkness that gathers” to the United States, just as she did at the Battle of Lepanto. 

    In his letter, Fr. Bozant thanked President Trump for invoking Our Lady’s intercession in the “Ave Maria” at the RNC. He also reminded the President of the importance of calling on Mary’s aid and protection through prayer.

    “The Catholic Church has invoked the intercession of particular saints and patronesses for all of the countries throughout the world. The patroness of the U.S. is the Blessed Virgin Mary under her title of the Immaculate Conception and so, it was most fitting that a prayer invoking her aid be sung from the seat of power of the Executive Branch of this great nation and I commend you for it,” Fr. Bozant told President Trump.  

    Fr. Bozant commended President Trump for invoking Our Lady’s aid and explained how fitting it would be for the President to consecrate the United States to the Blessed Virgin Mary’s protection since he is the nation’s Commander in Chief.

    In the same email, Fr. Bozant reminded his parishioners of their duty to pray for our nation’s leaders and hope that they will consecrate the country to Our Lady’s protection.

  • I don’t doubt that such a thing would have a political impact but our country has already been consecrated to the Immaculate Heart by the Catholic bishops so I don’t see another consecration by doubtful clergy attended by a non-Catholic president as being spiritually significant.

    Do you think that Archbishop Vigano  or any other Catholic bishops would join President Trump in consecrating the
    United States?
    If this would be the case, then the IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY would respond without a doubt.
    GOD is still in charge of EVERYTHING, HE wills that HIS and our Mother be honored, and as is always THE TRUTH,
    we are told in Matthew 19: 26 as follows:
    AND JESUS BEHOLDING, SAID TO THEM: WITH MEN THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE; BUT WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

    As Captain Picard would say, "make it so".

    I still just have this hunch that, one day, Donald Trump will convert to Catholicism.  He could always live in a Josephite "marriage" with Melania for the sake of Barron having two parents at home.  (It's altogether likely that this is already the case, though possibly due to the demands of his job, his age, and the toll that his unhealthy lifestyle has on him.  Obesity and a steady diet of unwholesome food are not the best way for a man in his seventies to remain the stallion that he probably was in his younger days.)

    It is perhaps providential that Trump does not have much knowledge of religion --- less error for him to have to unlearn.

    And just as Bill Clinton was "our first black president", it may well be that Donald Trump is "our first Catholic president".  No disrespect to JFK intended, just throwing that out there, and in all fairness, I must repeat the rumor that JFK was seeking to get right with God towards the end of his life --- perhaps he saw it coming --- and was even doing penance.
