August 6, 1945, feast of the Transfiguration, marks the infamous date in human history. The first-ever nuclear bomb fell on Hiroshima, Japan, heralding the nuclear age where Man is now capable of destroying Himself and the Earth many times over, as prophesied by Our Lady of Fatima.
 
Everything was vaporized within a mile, except for a church five blocks from Ground Zero. About 100,000 were killed instantly, and the casualties climbed up to about ten-fold within a few years due to radiation sickness. Fr. Hubert Schiffer, SJ, one of the survivors, said, “We survived because we were living the message of Fatima. We lived and prayed the rosary in that home.” This is why Satan is so afraid of the rosary.
 
On the third apparition at Fatima, Our Lady showed the three children a terrifying vision of hell for Mankind, saying “If you do as I ask (prayer, penance, say the rosary), many souls will be saved, and peace will reign on Earth. The war will end, but if you do not stop offending God, there will be an even worse one.” Fatima predicted the Spanish Civil War, World Wars I and II, and a possible future nuclear war.
 
The 20-kiloton Hiroshima bomb is dwarfed today by thousands of multiple-warhead 5-megaton bombs worldwide (250 times more powerful). One such bomb can obliterate Manhattan in New York in the blink of an eye before one can say a prayer. There have been a few accidental cases of near nuclear war based not on conflict but on technical reasons or plain human error. The prospect of nuclear war today hangs over Mankind like the Sword of Damocles. Let us return to the Lord, resort to prayer and penance, and pray for peace on our troubled planet.
 
God-sent disasters are always followed by messages of hope, as in the rainbows that appeared to Noah after the deluge, in New York after 9/11, and in Tacloban after Yolanda. The God of wrath is the God of mercy, as shown in the eastwind posters below.
