Listen To Him

Today’s Word:

“This is my chosen Son; listen to him” (Luke 9:35)

On This Date…

On August 6, 1945 the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan; 75,000 people died instantly and another 65,000 died in the following months from their injuries and radiation sickness.

On August 6, 1978 Pope Paul VI died in Rome at age 80; he was the first pope to visit the United States, addressing the United Nations General Assembly in December 1965 and pleading, “No more war. War never again.”

On August 6, 1457, the Feast of the Transfiguration was established by the Church; in today’s Gospel for the feast a voice is heard from within a cloud on the mountain: “This is my chosen Son; listen to him”. Blessed Paul VI listened well and said, “No more war.”
