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.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
