It will take place on Oct. 13, which is the anniver- sary of the last apparition of Our Lady of Fatima in 1917, in anticipation of the upcoming election. We seek Our Ladys intercession for the good, and for the conversion, of our nation to Gods ways of life and peace, said Msgr. Michael Ste- ber, pastor of St. Peter Cathedral in Marquette. A Day of Fast, Humiliation and Prayer has a long standing tradition in the United States, since Colonial times, through the present generation. Its a tradition during periods of danger and un- certainty. The best known call for a national petition was issued by President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War. President Lincoln proclaimed April 30, 1863 a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer a day Holy to the Lord, and devoted to religious duties proper to such a solemn occa- sion. Msgr. Steber said the tradition follows a scrip- tural call for times of severe need and that there is great power in prayer and fasting. In 2001,President George W. Bush proclaimed Sept. 13, 2001 a Day of National Prayer and Remembrance in wake of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. Anyone is welcome to join in the day, said Msgr. Steber.
