Mr. President:

I am a Catholic priest, a pastor of two churches, and a retired military chaplain with over thirty years of military service. I have been an ardent supporter of your two candidacies for President and your term as President of the United States. I have done everything within my power from the pulpit to keep my congregation in prayer for your reelection. There is no doubt in my mind and that of a majority of American citizens of good will that you won this election by a landslide.

My congregation is comprised of mostly conservative and traditional Catholics, who deeply appreciate your many positive and unprecedented contributions to our Nation, especially your fearless efforts to protect unborn children from abortion. As a military veteran I am grateful for your advocacy for military members, families and veterans and for rebuilding military forces.

Mr. President, as an American citizen and a Reserve chaplain, please know that I will never give up hope on your second term so long as you remain committed to that goal and I will support whatever course of action you deem appropriate and necessary to hold office. As you know, there is more than this election and our Nation at stake. The world itself hangs in the balance.

Finally, allow me to share this touching anecdote. Earlier today I buried a senior member of my congregation who spent her last weeks in a hospital and final days in hospice surrounded by her family. One of the things she was most proud of was that she voted for Donald Trump in two elections. Even as death loomed, she insured that she voted absentee ballot for Donald Trump. I believe that this level of commitment to your Presidency is reflective of my entire congregation.

Be assured of my continued prayers and public advocacy for your second term as our President.


Father John Paul Echert
