"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

August 6 1945


  1. Had never seen the last two nuclear shadows before. A stab to the heart. Like Pompei. Dear Mother in heaven, pray for us.

  2. I cannot even begin to imagine the terror of this day in those two cities. The most Christian part of Japan. I understand why the decision was made but still. Why not detonate on unihabitated islands first.? Why Japan and not Germany? A Jesuit House of prayer was spared in the strike zone. A miracle? Our Lady of Akita has strong warnings for us. Few listen. Is this what the end of the world will look like? I wonder.
