Japanese Catholic Novena for Peace
Thanks go out to Gearoidin of Catholic Answers Forum for pointing out the following.
Every year Catholics in Japan pray a novena for peace for the 9 days from August 6, which is the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, to August 15, which is the anniversary of the end of WWII, as well as the Feast of the Assumption of Mary.
Quite appropriate and timely, I think.
