“There was born the King of Kings, the Prince of Peace - an event on which all history would turn...the Christ Child Who bids us come. For it is only in finding and living the eternal meaning of the Nativity that we can be truly happy, truly at peace -- truly home...”
President Ronald Reagan – December 19, 1988
Let our fervent prayers ascend to His throne that He would not desert us in this hour of extreme peril, but remember us as He did our fathers in the darkest days of the Revolution... Let me invoke every individual, in whatever sphere of life he may be placed, to feel a personal responsibility to God and his country for keeping this day holy and for contributing all in his power to remove our actual and impending calamities.
President James Buchanan – December 14, 1860 - Proclamation for the National Day of Humiliation, Fasting & Prayer
