Because Catholics Say Stuff Like This…And Mean It

You know, like soon after their city has been devastated by a nuclear bomb. Catholics, being fallen human beings, say other stuff that is less encouraging too. But thoughts like the ones above are timeless, beautiful, and true.

I have faith that I will meet Takashi Nagai in person one day.

Which reminds me! My friends Ian and Dominic Higgins are busting their buns trying to squeeze the film version of Nagai’s life into the can before the next anniversary of the Nagasaki bombing rolls around (August 9). I’m talking about All That Remains.

Through the generous support of folks like you, they have really been pulling out all the stops to make this amazing true story a visually stunning one as well.

An actress with "digital make-up" applied. The face is kept shadowy, but we see enough to grasp the horrors and devastation inflicted by "Fat Man".

In this short clip, learn a little bit about Nagai the man, and the film.

    I remember reading that Nagasaki was one of two places in Japan with a significant Christian population, the other was Hiroshima. I know that Nagasaki has a shrine to multiple martyrs who were crucified during a time of religious persecution.
