LIVONIA, Mich. - Groups of people from various religious denominations are expected Saturday to gather and pray the rosary for peace.
Organizer Paul Daniel says a rosary rally will be held at noon Saturday on a lawn at Madonna University in Livonia. Others are expected to be held across the state and country.
Daniel says divine intervention is needed because "our children are out there killing each other." He says "we need to end that ... and we can't do it without help."
On Saturday, exactly 95 years ago, Mary, the mother of Jesus, is believed to have made an appearance to three children near Fatima, Portugal.
America Needs Fatima, a nonprofit campaign made up of Catholics, is organizing the rallies around the Catholic prayer.
