"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 9, 1945

Nagasaki before and after.


  1. Thank you for the last photo. May God have mercy on us.

  2. Terrifying in its power..pray for the innocents lost. Still the only choice and saved lives including my father's. More to the point now..Iran will have one?

  3. According to the WP, there are 15000 nuclear warheads worldwide.
    " Some of these warheads can be launched within minutes of the president’s order, hit anywhere in the world within a half hour, and deliver 20 times the explosive force of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. The president can order this without consulting Congress, without being checked by the Supreme Court. "
    Which is probably one big reason why 50 former security advisors recently signed a letter calling Trump unqualified to be president.

    1. I agree with you, and its unfortunate, as I can't stand the Clintons..(we are getting a twofer here.) Sigh, better luck in 4 years I guess.
