The Message of Fatima

Copied from Friar's blog:

A New Documentary about the Jesuits at Hiroshima

Finding Fatima is a documentary that opens on Hiroshima August 6, 1945. Eight Jesuit priests living just a few blocks from the blast site not only miraculously survived but had no effects of the radiation. Everyone else within a radius of roughly 1.5 Kilometres was reportedly killed instantly, and those outside the range died of radiation within days. However, the only physical harm to Fr. Shiffer, S.J., was that he could feel a few pieces of glass in the back of his neck. the priests have been examined over 200 times by scientists. Each time the priests repeated the same explanation for their survival: "We believe that we survived because we were living the message of Fatima."
