Ave Maria!

Br. Anthony Josemaria a member of our Third Order has published an article in Homiletic and Pastoral Review on the tragic Catholic holocaust that occurred in Nagasaki when the Bomb dropped. Great article Br. Anthony!

The Catholic Holocaust of Nagasaki—“Why, Lord?”

The witness of the Catholics
of Nagasaki shows
God’s providence in the darkest of times.

By Brother Anthony Josemaria

On August 9, 1945, God’s inscrutable providence allowed an atomic bomb named “Fat Man” to be dropped from a B-29 into the heavily populated city of Nagasaki. The epicenter of the blast was the Urakami district, the heart and soul of Catholicism in Japan since the sixteenth century. My purpose in this article is to share an insight into God’s purpose in allowing this horrible event, a discovery made from reading (the recent Ignatius Press reprint of) Fr. Paul Glynn’s marvelous book A Song for Nagasaki. The book is subtitled, The Story of Takashi Nagai: Scientist, Convert, and Survivor of the Atomic Bomb.1
