Your elements of lightning, snow and sunlight,
come to all people, regardless of our intent and deeds.
As we attempt to follow the Gospel of Jesus,
in the tradition of Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin,
we thank You for life itself.
Admitting that peace is your pleasure,
the gift You send us, we are happy to strive for justice,
through the Works of Mercy.
We know the souls of Dorothy and Peter,
can unite with us in prayer,
that our needs may be met, and our desires be fulfilled.
Grant this favor that we humbly ask through their intercession:
(WE MENTION OUR REQUEST)
May their historic activities and faith inspire your people
to turn to Christ as a model of justice-making,
to see His face in our planet's poor folks,
and to raise all voices in joy for
Your cause: the reign of Love.
We ask this through
Christ our Savior.
Listen to Manhattan Project folks & unrelated kids in the 1980s reflecting on the religion of nuclearism.
Because of the 1979 nuclear spill at 5:30am and the 1945 nuclear bomb @ 5:30am, July 16th is "New Mexico Nuclear Disasters Day." Learn about the Tularosa downwinders.
Because the USA used the Nevada Proving Ground (currently called the Nevada National Security Site) to start bombing Western Shoshone territory in 1951, January 27th is Utah's "Downwinders Day".
