Today's the last day!

A little belatedly: the Ember Days this week many of those who love the ancient Gregorian liturgy are keeping the traditional Ember Fast to pray for the Holy Father and for the full implementation of the motu proprio. Here is the "official" notice:
Call to Prayer and Fasting

This year, the Autumn Ember days are on September 24, 26, and 27. They follow the Feast of the Holy Cross (Sept. 14), the first anniversary that the motu proprio took effect. Let all traditional Catholics unite to observe the traditional Ember fast on these three days: 1) to pray for the Holy Father’s welfare, 2) to thank Almighty God for the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, and 3) to pray for its full implementation in every parish around the world.
