Hiroshima

The U.S. Bishops issued a statement this week commemorating the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan in 1945.  Writing for the bishops, Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles, President of the USCCB, stated, “My brother bishops and I mourn with the Japanese people for the innocent lives that were taken and the generations that have continued to suffer the public health and environmental consequences of these tragic attacks.  On this solemn occasion, we join our voice with Pope Francis and call on our national and world leaders to persevere in their efforts to abolish these weapons of mass destruction, which threaten the existence of the human race and our planet.”
