Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception – 8 December 2016

Nothing is impossible with God: Homily Deacon Greg Kandra

I was reading today some of the news coverage marking the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

As more veterans die off, and there are fewer left to tell the story, it can be easy for us to forget the just how much this “date that will live in infamy” changed our country and our world. For many Americans, it affected their lives in ways they wouldn’t realize until many years later.

One of those Americans was a 22-year-old young man, not much more than a boy, the son of a coal miner in Pennsylvania. He had left home at 18 to join the Christian Brothers. Four years later, he was preparing to take his final vows for religious life.

But on December 7, 1941, all that changed.
