The Bombing of Hiroshima, August 6 1945
Today is Hiroshima Day, the day we lit up the world with the glaring shafts of enmity.… Does that sound like the presence of God to you? Ironically enough, it is also the feast of the Transfiguration, the awareness of the apostles that Jesus, alight with God, brought Divinity into their midst.
When we become aware of the conjunction of these two things on the same day, we become mindful of our obligation to bring Jesus into chaos again.
